Windows 7: Chrome OS Sound issues

21 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Chrome OS Sound issues

Install went great but I had no sound. The solution below worked. I just cant seem to save it with the following instructions.

So what Im asking here is how to save my setting from step 1, because the below instructions are not working for me...

Solution : Follow the steps below to solve issues with sound

Open a terminal aka command prompt by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T
Write “shell” and press enter
Write “alsamixer” and press enter
You will get an audio control panel. Use up arrow key to increase the master volume. Use left/right arrow keys to move from slider to slider.
Press Esc to exit. Now this will only remain like this untill next reboot.
If you want to make the changes permament follow the steps below :

Write “sudo mount -o remount, rw /” and press enter ( This has mounted the filesystem with write permissions)
Now write “sudo alsactl store” and press enter
That’s it .. this should resolve your low volume or no sound issue.
