I installed pavucontrol, and in the Configuration tab turned the HDMI

Still nothing here.

pavucontrol was already installed, so I ran it. It came up in the

Did you goto the right-most tab "Configuration"? That is where you can turns things on/off. Mine is

HDA NVidia 		Off
HDA NVidia 		Off
Built in Audio 		Off
USB Audio Device 	Analog Stereo Output and Analog mono Input
CM106 Like Sound Device Analog Surround 7.1 Output

Turn OFF what you don't need/want and configure what you do have. My BEST luck is using USB. Stinkin' stereo jacks have to figure if your speakers are directly connected or amplified. Doesn't always work out on laptops especially. The USB audio device is my USB stereo headphones, and the CM106 Like Sound Device is my USB 7.1 sound setup to blow my neighbors into the next county. Hope this helps, USB seems to work best. Ric
