How to check Sound Module Installed - Ubuntu

Posted on 4:32 PM by Bharathvn

Is the System Recognizing Sound Card in Ubuntu



Open a terminal window, and type "aplay -l". Your output should look something like this:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC861VD Analog [ALC861VD Analog]
Subdevices: 0/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
If you see aplay: device_list:221: no soundcard found..., Ubuntu is not recognizing your sound card for playback. Check that you have the proper modules installed.
