HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
« on: August 13, 2013, 02:31:51 am »
Just installed 1004, with  GT 430, based on the messages, the nvidia driver installed and the alsa backport drivers, but not getting any audio through the HDMI port; have no on board audio on this board.

If I do aplay -l, I get no audio device.

Did not find anything to indicate HDMI issues with this card, maybe I was wrong or something went wrong for me

You should try a kernel-upgrade...worked for me.

Which kernel version you used, or just use the latest?

Would the instructions apply as it did for 810 in the Upgrading_the_Kernel, wiki entry?

I cannot seem to post links

when I try the apt-get search for linux-image and linux-headers, and linux-restricted, not finding any restricted modules. Would this be an issue?

Did the kernel upgrade, rebooted and no onscreen orbitor, am presented with a black login prompt.

Is it I am missing another step?

Check if the nvidia driver is loaded...  lsmod | grep nvidia

If not.. try loading..   modprobe nvidia

If fails.. you may need to manually reinstall.. you may have to install the linux-headers for your kernel version

Ok I had messed things up, so had to do a re-install.

Had previously installed the headers for the new kernel, will retry and let u know.

When re-doing, I am seeing some failures after adding the line to /etc/apt/sources.list when u do an apt-get update, see below

The apt-cache search linux-image, gives me a whole list of images, also for headers

This is what I choose

linux-image-3.0.0-32-generic

linux-headers-3.0.0-32-generic

Thus did apt-get install linux-image-3.0.0-32-generic linux-headers-3.0.0-32-generic

Installed the kernel, rebooted, did the lsmod, no results returned, tried reinstalling the nvidia-glx-260 driver, which failed


Downloaded the driver from nvidia NVIDIA-Linux-x86-319.32.run, which ran, but the screen was much bigger than the tv.

If i re-ran audio video setup, it would tell me it failed to start x, with the download nvidia driver.


Error reinstall nvidia-glx-260 on kernel 3.0.0-32-generic

I do have the kernel headers for the kernel installed, installed

any thoughts, seem to be missing something big time, really thought the GT 430, would have worked easily enough, LOL

Its 10.04, if its the stock alsa that comes with it, it does not see the Audio device, even if I do sudo aplay -l.

I did a re-install this morning again, before leaving for work, will look at it again when I reach home tonight.

Was planning since the kernel upgrade not working complying, to try upgrade the alsa driver on the existing kernel to 25.

Going to start taking backup now with System Rescue Cd, in a effort to reduce the workload of doing a restore

I'm using  gtx550... It only would work with s newer kernel...   


I added a a xorg update repository... giving me the latest nvidia driver package...

Go to www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/ubuntu-x-swat.  It will give you instructions
