Bug Description

Hi there,

when I use the volume controls of my T60, I can't hear any sound unless the OSD shows more than 75% of the volume bar. Anything below that and I can't hear nay sound. Even if youtube sound or other sound options in players are maxed out, no sound to be heard if volume is below 75%.

The adjustment of the sound via the volume keys is not as good as in Windows.

I am having the same problem, only it affects me (no sound) when the volume level is less than 50% and no matter how I adjust the master volume. I have a gateway mx6448 and my sound card info is:

scandido@scl:~$ aplay -l
