No audio after running BackTrack 5 Release 1 on Lenovo Thinkpad T60

I used Lenovo Thinkpad T60 laptop last one year. Yesterday i do installation of the BackTrack 5 Release 1 OS on this laptop. It install successfully but when i try to run video files on it, it shows video very well but no audio comes with it. I used VLC media player for playing music files. I have very little Linux background. Hence please let me know that why should this OS makes problem to generate sound on this laptop. Can anyone describe the correct way that helps to get sound on this OS?? thanks for any such help.

In that situations, you need to check the Sound Properties of your BackTrack 5 Release 1 OS. this is well for fixing sound problem. Try to find out this sound property and then perform the sound technology setting task on it. This is well for you to set up your OS for getting best sound quality. Try this and check its details. IN that process, if possible the install latest sound driver on it. this is well for your laptop.

You can try to install sound drivers from the drivers cd using "wine". This is well for you to get the best sound driver for your linux based OS system. Using Wine on Ubuntu distribution based system i got the best sound result for my BackTrack os. i hope that you can also found such kind of help for your system. Try this and check its details. This is well for you.

VLC media player might be missing its libraries. Hence i canb suggest to you for try to reinstall it using suitable command. In this reinstalltion of the vlc use apt-get reinstall vlc code. Try to execute it on terminal window. This is well for solving this type of problem. Hope this time you got sound on your backtrack OS.

make sure that, in the boot time you installed OS find out the sound driver and its related ports. If something wrong message arrives on it, you need to simply perform troubleshooting task on it. In that either reinstallaiton of the sound driver or the changing the audio port on your laptop works. If similar kind of situations happens on your laptop, try to do this task and check its result by playing same file. If sound comes problem is solved. Otherwise need some extra process.

In very rare conditons, the file you choosen is might be not compatible with the OS. try to check same software with another compatible musical file. This is not happen always but it gives indication that what was wrong happen on this system. This is well for you to fix your no sounbd problem. Try this and if this is file extension type of problem try with different file.

If the basic task such as click on file, opening folder or opening program not generating sound, then definitely your OS need suitable sound driver. Try to find out compatible sound driver for your system. Find out it using official site help. then install or upgrade it on your laptop. This might be works for removing no sound problem.

I have few experience with this OS. I can recommend to you for 'run as root' and learn security policy. This will be indicate real problem and its appropriate solutions for your OS. Linux distribution based OS, works as a root. hence start your system on administrator mode. then run it as a root. It fix your sound problem.
