Hey everyone,

 

I hope everyone is doing fine and all. I somehow stumbled upon my ALSA drivers and managed to unistall them.  As a natural consequence I lost audio and I can't use my pc properly any more.

 

I tried re installing them but no success any suggestions , ideas or help is appreciated.

What version of Linux are you running? If you remember, what did you do to uninstall them?

I am using linux mint cinnamon , I really don't know how to get any further information.

 

I unistalled them because I thought that I needed to install some other sound drivers because I didn't have any sounds at the time.

 

I run a dual boot with windows 8.1 so that seems to becausing the  sound issues

You never had sound?

 

And where did you Uninstall them from, the Synaptic Package Manager?

 

Dual booting should not cause a problem as far as I know.

I just found out , I am running 17.3 64bit.

 

I unistalled them by following some online guide and by using the terminal.

 

Actually dual boot seemed to be causing this issue somehow if I may say win 8.1 got a bit possessive and I wasn't able to use the pc properly.

 

I had to stop the quick boot option .

 

Yet sometimes I turn on my pc I didn't have sounds.

Open a terminal and type history, then press Enter on your keyboard. Do you see the commands you used? If so, please copy and paste them into a post here.

 Unfortunately history didn't show me anything. Not a single command. 

 

But I remember that I used

 

sudo gnome-terminal 

 

in a terminal to get to a root terminal to remove the drivers if that helps.

In that case, open a terminal and run this command, then copy and paste the output into a post here:
cat .bash_history

It really didn't

 

It showed this :

 

 

history
history,
history
 

 

I was wondering will it be better if I re install linux instead of fixing it  ?

Try running

sudo apt-get install alsa-utils
sudo apt-get install alsamixer

In a terminal (Each line is a separate command), and post the output please.
