Bug Description

Clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix in new HP Compaq Mini CQ10-500 netbook. All systems including audio record and playback functioned when test in live USB environment prior to install, altho mic quality was scratchy but readable. After install neither internal speakers or internal mic functioned. External speaker functioned when connect. External mic did not function. After much help from forum moderator in Ubuntu Hardware and Laptop forum was able to get speakers to function after installing upgraded alsa package. Internal and external microphone still do not function.

Ok Trevor, looks like your hardware is indeed quite similar to the one in #671814. Please try the following:

1) Make sure no alsa driver overrides (such as https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio/InstallingLinuxAlsaDriverModules are installed). Also remove model quirks in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf.
2) Download and install http://people.canonical.com/~diwic/temp/alsa-hda-diwic-idt88b-dkms_1.0.23.diwic_all.deb
3) Reboot
4) Test and see if it solves your problem correctly.
5) Please post an alsa-info according to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio/AlsaInfo

Thanks!

I followed your directions to the letter and -- bingo -- I now have full
audio function. Recording quality is good in all applications I have
tried. Particularly clear in Skype. As requested, I've attached alsa-info.

Many thanks
