For work purposes I'm running windows 10 and ubuntu 16.04 on my Lenovo Z710 laptop. On windows 10 i have no sound issues. On Ubuntu sound disappears when: i restart my laptop from windows 10 to Ubuntu(50% chance sound won't work) and sometimes when computer goes to sleep while on Ubuntu os. What i have tried and didn't work: *putting computer to sleep while in Ubuntu; *restarting pulseaudio; *messing with alsamixer; *full shutdown windows 10 before running ubuntu(50% chance sound won't work) What works: *restarting laptop when running Ubuntu(70% chance)
I would like to be able to fix sound without a restart and yes my output device is the correct one.
