Hi All,

I have been wrestling with this problem for months now and at my wits 
end.  The sound is always very low and if I try to bring the sound 
louder by using the sound references icon on the top panel, the sound is 
choppy with lots of static.

Output of lspci for the sound device is as follows:

01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GF108 High Definition Audio 
Controller (rev a1)

Please, could someone help me out to get this irritating problem solved?

Thank you for your time,
