Only Digital Out Available in Sound Preferences

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I have been experimenting with hackintosh for a while now, and just recently installed a fresh install of 10.8.0. Im running an MSI GT683r laptop with no DSDT (as I dont know how to do this) and have a working install. In all the other versions ive installed in the past, (10.5-7) I've always been able to get my audio to work using the voodoo 0.2.1 or one of the audio kexts (my pc has Realtek 892) found in the various releases of ######. However, for some reason, I cannot get my internal speakers to function. Now at one point, I could use my internal speakers on my 10.8.0 install but now, all of sudden, I see is 4 different selections of "Digital out" and a "line out" in my sound settings menu. I've tried installing and reinstalling various different voodoo releases, realtek, and as well as reinstalled the OS but with no luck. Also, when the speakers worked ###### installs of realtek kexts always failed, so i used voodoo which worked, but now the realtek ones install. I read that you had to reset the digital sensor in the headphone jack, but there is no red light coming from it and I have crammed q tips and tickled the inside quite a lot.


Also, my laptop physically has a headphone jack, a mic (no inputs can be seen currently on sound prefs), a line in, and a line out (only sound line that works)


Any suggestions? My laptop has very nice speakers and i want to use them. Thanks in advance.

If your previous attempts at installing voodoo or appleHDA kexts "failed" it is a failure of the software you are using to install them. Granted they may not work when installed, but you will get a kenel panic, or no function, but not "install failed". Install them your self either using the voodoo installer or kext wizard

      Hi people, can someone help to put my HDMI sound working? I already tried different methods and I can't figure a way to fix this problem.   And another question, someone knows why the HDMI port just work if i use macbook pro 14,2 on smbios? Because my hardware is much more similar to 14,3.    
      thanks guys

      I have a problem with sound via HDMI on GTX 750 Ti. The sound only works after sleep I put and wake up the Hackintosh from sleep. The TV gets detected before sleep in the Sound Settings, but I want to play YouTube, Play Music or anything else there is no sound coming out. After sleep it's working without a problem. So in roder to get sound via HDMI I need to start the hackintosh, put it to sleep, wake it up and then I have sound.
      The question is: Why the sound via HDMI doesn't work without sleep ?
      You can find the the system specs in the signature.

      So I just got Yosemite up and virtualized in ESXi.
      However, I am using workstation as a console like the KB says to do after 6.5.
      So the benefit of the workstation is that sound can come out if you add the adapter. This works just fine with a window$ VM. (BTW the documentation says it shouldn't work)
      In the yosemite VM it just produces a white-noise static when the sounds should be played.
      This tells me that it is a driver issue, and should be able to work in theory.
      However, does anyone have experience with VMWare workstation and the sound in OS X?

      I'm having audio issues with my Dell Vostro 2520's microphone with VoodooHDA
      The internal microphone isn't detected, yet the microphone audio port is detected, and works.
      According to Windows and Dell, my laptop has the Cirrus Logic CS4213 codec in it, so if that's important, there it is.
      I am on Mavericks 10.9.5, since that works the best on this laptop, but would be open to try newer versions if things work well enough.
      I can provide my DSDT if needed.
