    I’m not sure how to go about fixing it. If I run pulseaudio I get this…

    [[email protected] ~]$ pulseaudio
    E: [pulseaudio] pid.c: Daemon already running.
    E: [pulseaudio] main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed.

  • second user with such kind a issue: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/7054/sound-trouble/7

    Do you try to take a look with

    alsamixer
    

    [F6] and choose your card then.
    also may take a look to paprefs pavucontrol

    Looks like one internal audiochip on Motherboard and one over HDMI from Graca Nvidia ?
    May the wrong one is choosen in ausio-settings

  • Hi Joe,
    So, I got home yesterday and turned on computer. Had some updates so I installed them. Fired up a game and sound was working.
    Got home today. Started computer and ran updates again. Start a game and no sound again.

    I did notice that 2 files got updated and it seems this is when it started happening . What are these files?
