View Full Version : Super quiet sound in FC5

9th May 2006, 06:38 PM
First off I am a linux noob w/a fresh install of FC5 so I will probably need to be entirely walked through any solution to my problem.

I am on an MSI 1035 laptop w/a Realtek AC655 (AC'97) sound card, which is recognized by FC, but all of the sound is so quiet that I thought at first there was no sound at all, until I squeezed my headphones to my ears. All of my settings in alsamixer are maxed, everything is enabled, and I'm pretty sure that I have all of the alsa files (I just installed/updated everything in yumex w/alsa in the name). Does anyone know a solution to this?

I'm having the same problem with FC 6 (64bit) as well. The mortherboard is a ASUS M2N4-SLI with an onboard Realtek ALC850. All mixers are maxed, but the sound is very quiet... anyone have any ideas?
