Static noise on Intel N10/ICH 7 HD Audio (SOLVED)
Hi, I have puppy lupu 5.2.5 on gigabyte mobo with onboard Intel N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller. I've got all speakers, headphone and microphone working but the static noise coming from the speaker and headphone is annoying.
I tried using live ubuntu maverick meerkat and I got clean audio. What could I do to eliminate this static noise on my lupu installation?
I will not be much help, because I do not know what Puppy version you are running or where the Ubuntu audio driver is located.
But the reason I replied is because I have a Compaq laptop running Win XP that does that very thing.
And after checking the HP/Compaq web site, I found that an audio driver was released that fixed the problem.
Since you found that reducing mic volume in alsamixer, please edit your first post and add SOLVED to the title.
Also, unless you are using the mic for an application that requires it, you can set the volume even lower.
Mine is set to zero.
