Playback sound is only audible starting at 50% on Dell Inspiron 1420
Binary package hint: alsa-base
Playback sound is only audible starting at 50% on Dell Inspiron 1420 running Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop x86. This is true with 9.04, 8.10, 8.04 (all x86).
BIOS version on both is (A00 05/23/2007)
Sound card on both is Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller [8086:284b] (rev 02)
Codec on both is:
Conexant ID 2C06
Tested the following on two 1420 Laptops. The first running Ubuntu 9.04 x86 and the second running Ubuntu 9.04 AMD64. I find that I can start hearing audio at ~50% on both.
On Ubuntu 9.10 sound is audible at ~4% on the second.
Both of these volume levels refer to the "Master" level, all other important playback levels are at 100%.
