Bug Description

On my HP Compaq 6730b the laptop speakers had no sound, after the installation of Ubuntu 8.10 alpha5 2.6.27-2-generic. The only way I could hear sound was when I plugged in my headphones. After reading the Wiki on how to install Intel soundcards, it still didn't work, but now all works fine. Here is my solution (first steps are from Intel soundcard Wiki):
1. finding out what kind of soundcard i have in my laptop

cat /proc/asound/cards

0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
                      HDA Intel at 0x98900000 irq 17
2.finding out the codec-type

head -n 1 /proc/asound/card0/codec*

==> /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 <==
Codec: Analog Devices AD1984A
==> /proc/asound/card0/codec#1 <==
Codec: LSI ID 1040
3.with the information above, searching for the soundchip

zless /usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/ALSA-Configuration.txt.gz

4. editing "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base" and adding in my case

options snd-hda-intel model=mobile

after that I still had no sound from my speakers, but the final step solved all that
5. editing "/etc/modprobe.d/options" and adding in my case

options snd-hda-intel model=mobile


Now not only do my laptop speakers have sound, but also mute if I plug in my headphones.

I have a brand new HP 6930 notebook, and installed Ubuntu 8.10 current beta with all packages up to date.

I see this same problem, and the same solution works. (I don't know if both "options" lines are necessary or not; I just added both and rebooted.)

Also, on the 6930 there's a hardware mute button next to the volume controls above the keyboard, and it affects the volume of the builtin speakers but not the headphones (i.e. the headphones ignore the mute status).

Matt Ginzton (matt-ginzton) wrote :

I now have just "options snd_hda_intel model=mobile" in /etc/modprobe.d/options, and that also suffices to let me play sound through headphones when plugged in and internal speakers otherwise.

It also has the side effect of removing most of the tracks from the volume control for device "HDA Intel (Alsa mixer)".

Thank you! This solved the same problem on a LG P1 Express Dual. I my case I entered "lg" instead of "mobile" on point 4 and 5.

My Machine: Laptop HP 6730b
Platform: Ubuntu 8.10 (using AlSA for sound)
Problem: Sound comes only in headphones, but not through laptop speakers

I tried to repeat the above steps, but couldnt proceed after below step

To check the model of the sound card, I run the below cmd in the terminal
>head -n 1 /proc/asound/card0/codec*

==> /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 <==
Codec: Analog Devices ID 194a

==> /proc/asound/card0/codec#1 <==
Codec: Generic 11c1 ID 1040

Now can you tell me, how to identify the model?

Without knowing the model i tried to edit below files

by trying
>options snd-hda-intel model=mobile
>options snd-hda-intel model=laptop

Now how to proceed..
I am really stuck, will be great if somebody provide me a soltion

rajeshz (rajualways) wrote :

Hi Guys,

I solved the problem

Step 1:
Download this and install it.

Step 2:
Type <gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base> in terminal and add a line
options snd-hda-intel model=laptop
at theend of the file

Type <gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options> in terminal and add a line
options snd-hda-intel model=laptop
at the end of the file

Step 3:

Step 4:
Type <gnome-volume-control> in terminal
and make sure nothing is muted.

Step 5:
If sound works, send thanks to <email address hidden> else forgive me...

to whom it may interest:

to solve the problem with my laptop I followed
rajeshz recipe downloading the drivers and installing them.
But instead of adding "options snd-hda-intel model=laptop"
I added options "snd-hda-intel model=mobile" in either file
(Step 2).
Afterwards I went through step 3 to 5 and everything worked
smoth ;-)

I followed RAJESHZ directions step by step and now sound is working.

Tried both the original and rajeshz instructions, both worked but the rajeshz one gave me a lot more options to control my sound card in the mixer.

Thanks a lot for this... now if only ubuntu could include the line in the module load by default :D

Hey, worked for me on my HP 6375s too. Took about 3 minutes or so to build on reboot. Laptop speakers work like a charm. Thanks again, folks.

Witan (jamespaprocki) wrote :

Tried the original instructions. I couldn't get past step 2, finding the codecs, because the terminal didn't recognize the command.

Tried rajeshz's instructions, but it didn't work. When I tried installing the "options" line in either document, it wouldn't let me save. "You do not have the permissions necessary to save the file. Please check that you typed the location correctly and try again."

Now my headphones don't work either. Rah. Murphy's Law, I guess.

Computer model: HP dv4-1220us

Any other suggestions?

Witan (jamespaprocki) wrote :

Witan again - strike that last about the headphones not working. I guess the sound go turned down a little. I have to have it on full blast before you can hear it. Don't know if that's normal, but it works.

Note: only my headphones are working. My laptop speakers still won't work, so the problem remains.

Jordan Thoms (jords) wrote :

Hi Witan
You need to edit the files in /etc as root. Not sure how your opening the files now, but in rajeshz's instructions where it says:
Type <gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base> in terminal you need to type gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base and same for the other file, gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options not just gedit. This will ask you for your password and then open the file with root permissions which will let you save.


Witan (jamespaprocki) wrote :

I tried it with gksudo; didn't work.
I tried reinstalling the package, and it said it failed :-(

I should have been more specific. I have the same problem - sound from the headphones but not the builtin speakers. Editing the suggested files with both

options snd-hda-intel model=mobile
options snd-hda-intel model=laptop

made no difference.

Next I downloaded and installed the driver suggested by regeshz and the behavior is still the same. I can get sound from the headphones but not the speakers.

I have a HP6735b and
cat /proc/asound/cards

gave same information.

So I also edited
/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base /etc/modprobe.d/options as described in step 4 and 5 and then rebooted. That also made it work for me.

Thanks a lot.

Sounds like you got the same problem i did when i loaded the latest updates on 4/9. there seems to be something happening with the gnome applets. here is what i had to do to fix , though you might not like the first part. i tried everything first with no luck. Finally reinstalled ubuntu and ran all updates, then after reboot i got the gnome applets error. i did not select the "delete applet from your configuration?", and then reinstalled gnome-applets, gnome-applets-data, and GDM. i then applied the fix from rajeshz and got the ubuntu drum at start up. music to my ears! someone might be able to fix without reinstall, but i got annoyed. I had all my data copied to an external hd so it wasn't that big a deal, just time consuming. hint: reload ubuntu, load all updates and go to bed :-)

I've looked at this bug, and to me it appears to be a collection of related issues, especially because people are having success with different solutions, depending on their devices. I've marked the bug invalid, as I don't believe there exists a solution that definitively closes the bug for all participants.

Could those experiencing the issue please retest against a current image (alpha, beta, daily, etc.), and if the problem recurs, open new (separate) bug reports following ? The goal is to have one report per specific hardware device demonstrating the issue, as it is likely that each requires different quirks to reach a solution.

Matt Ginzton (matt-ginzton) wrote :

Ahem, this bug does reflect one real problem on one specific family of devices.

The snd-hda-intel driver does not correctly detect/configure the jacks on HP Elitebook 2530p/6930p (and probably 8530p, and apparently some other similar HP models). With the stock settings, you will get sound from headphones but never the internal speaksers. You need to load the snd-hda-intel driver with "model=mobile"; then it works.

(Apparently this is fixed in alsa from 2.6.30: But that doesn't help with Intrepid or Jaunty, unless you backport the fix, or specifically configure snd-hda-intel.)

IMHO this specific problem is addressable by this bug report, and if other people have *other* problems they should file new bugs, but I don't see the point in closing this one as invalid only to refile the same issue this one originally tracked.

My HP6735b gives

However I solved it by editing "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base" and adding
  options snd-hda-intel model=laptop

`options snd-hda-intel model=mobile' also works as suggested in description.

In Jaunty I did not need to edit/create "/etc/modprobe.d/options" as described in description.

Shouldn't this bug be marked as affecting the alsa-base ubuntu package, as the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf belongs to alsa-base. I am new to launchpad so I hesitate to do it myself lest I do more damage than good.

Hi karavoia,

Please be sure to confirm this issue exists with the latest development release of Ubuntu. ISO CD images are available from . Please then run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p alsa-base 269027

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.

That will not work, it may make things worse and complicate fixing the problem.

It seems like you have a completely different problem; The hardware is different and your experience "The headphones don't work but the speakers do" does not match this bugs description. I suggest you create a new bug describing your problem.

Practically ignoring Step 3, i modified the file in this step (btw, i found it as "alsa-base.conf")

Step 5:

I dont know what to do now.

And the solution Rajesh provided didnt work. I downloaded the .deb file, but the instalation failed.
This is what i got:

Anyway, i modified the file at /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and added the model=laptop at the end of the file, restarted (btw, it configures some kernel files and it takes A LONG TIME to even start. :S) and didnt work.

tl;dr: i cant make this work with the first solution or rajeshz's in my hp dv5 1135la, now my ubuntu 9.04 takes A LOT to start and the processor is working as hell (which heats up my laptop as hell) :(

I've fixed the "no sound with internal speaker" problem on HP 620 (this laptop has only one mono speaker) by installing linux-backports-modules-alsa-lucid-generic package on Ubuntu 10.04.1
Now I have HP Mini 110-3010sy also with one mono speaker and original Ubuntu 10.04.1 also has the same problem - no sound on HP Mini 110-3010sy netbook :(
I will install linux-backports-modules-alsa-lucid-generic package on this netbook and write there if this will fix audio problem.

Hi everyone. I need some help. I tried the patch but it came up with an error in the install. Bugger that. Anyhow, long story short, my speakers aren't working either now. They were yesterday for about a month since I did the install of ubuntu, now nothing. Perhaps a virus of sorts?

Any help would be amazing. I can either be reached here or at <email address hidden>.

Great, now I have no sound from either one. I didn't change anything? What the hell!
