I'm on an IBM Thinkpad X60. When I plug either headphones or external speakers into the headphone jack (whether on the docking station or the laptop itself), the laptop speakers aren't muted. I can hear sound coming from both simultaneously. I've tried editing the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf in all kinds of ways, my most recent attempt being to add the line:
options snd-hda-intel model=thinkpad
but still with no success.
I'm using 10.04 with the 2.6.32 kernel. I tried installing the .34 kernel with no better results, so I switched back.
I just installed fedora 12 on my new lenovo laptop sl510 where I have pulseaudio over my alsa. The problem is, when I plugin headphones in 3.5 jack the speakers dont mute which is really irritating. I tried switching from "analog output" to "analog headphones", but what that does it mutes both.
I've been bashing my head against this problem for weeks now. The problem is that my external speakers are not being muted when I plug in headphones. I get sound through both the speakers and the headphones at the same time. This is happening on every Linux distro I've tried so far on this box, but in Windows everything behaves as expected. I've tried every option I have in both alsamixer and the Gnome sound preferences, to no avail.
Curiously, if I mute any one of the audio channels or toggle the headphone switch in alsamixer, all sound output is muted, to both the speakers and headphones. The audio chipset is a Realtek ALC888, on a Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 motherboard (6 jacks, optical and coaxial S/PDIF out). I must've tried a dozen different models in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, and none of them seem to make any difference at all.
I found a curious issue with my new Dell XPS 8100. On my old Inspiron, as soon as I plugged in the headphones they muted the speakers. That's how it should be, because you listen to headphones so you don't blast your music all over the room. But now, on the 8100, the speakers still blast even if the headphones are plugged in. Headphones Also work, so they're getting a clear signal. It's just simultaneously being played in the rear speakers too.
I have a Toshiba Satellite L650 with a Conexant 5069 sound card, and when I plug in my headphones the built-in speakers don't mute. I already tried adding options snd-hda-intel model=lenovo to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf (I also tried auto, toshiba, thinkpad and ideapad). This is the alsactl init output: Unknown hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Conexant ID 5069" "HDA:14f15069,1179fd12,00100302" "0x1179" "0xff1e" Hardware is initialized using a guess method.
I just installed Debian Squeeze on my Acer Aspire 7736ZG and I also got some problems with the Realtek ALC888 onboard-sound. Normally, the speakers should mute themselves when headphones are plugged in, but they don't. Instead I hear sound on both, speakers and headphones.
I already installed pulseaudio, but that didn't help. On Ubuntu Maverick (11.01?) I had the problems that the sound didn't play at all until I installed an alsa-driver which was modified by one of the ubuntu developers. Is there any fix like this for Debian Squeeze, too?
I'm having some trouble configuring my the sound on my laptop. I'm using Alsa. Playing sound is no problem, but when I plug my Koss headphones into the audio jack the laptop speakers continue playing and sound also comes out of my headphones. When I go to alsamixer from cli the sound card only shows 1 master channel so I can't mute the internal laptop speakers.
Since I bought my computer and I installed Linux on it, I had this problem... Back in the day I never Found a REAL Solution and finally my "solution" (in Fedora) was installing "pavucontrol" to choose the Devices when I needed to Switch.
Via the Pulse Audio Volume Control I was able to Mute speakers or Headphones at my will, even if I had both connected, this thing worked from F12 to F14 very well...
(The same problem is present in every distro I tried and sometimes it was solved the same way in other distros)
But Now, I'm in F15 And my magic workout doesn't work anymore... it doesn't matter wich device I choose as output, the PC simply don't mute one or another and my headphones and speakers sound at the same time.
The Sound card is a HDA INTEL with the Realtek ALC662 rev1 Chip, as I said before, I'm using Fedora 15 KDE (64 Bit version) and I'm running ALSA v 1.0.23 with pulseaudio 0.9.22-5
I have a few problems with my sound. First off, I don't know exactly what chip it is, but my laptop is an Acer Aspire 6530 running a fully updated Fedora 13. Sound itself works, but that's about as far as it goes.So, here are my problems:Built-in laptop speakers don't auto-mute/turn off whenever something it plugged into the headphones jack.Microphone doesn't seem to work, both the one next to my webcam as well as any mic attached to the mic jack. The webcam itself works fine.I would be really happy if I could get these issues fixed. I was so impressed that I made Fedora my only OS on my laptop, but fixing a few more things would be even better.
I've been having this problem in multiple versions of ubuntu from 6.04 to 10.04(which i am currently using). I have a hp 500 laptop(quite old) and when i plug in the headphones it plays sound from both the headphones and the laptop speakers. This doesn't happen when i'm using windows xp. if there are any threads about this please direct me to them if not give me advice on what to do.
Im running Jessie, and have run into issue with my laptop sound card.
If is shutdown the laptop with the headphones plugged in, and remove them while its off, system wont recognize they are not there any more and is probably sending sound out to this output. To get the sound out to my laptop speakers I need to plug the headphones while the system is up, and remove them again. Only then will the output device work properly.

I have a Dell Vostro 2520 and when I plug in the headphones, the speakers don't mute. I tried to edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file several times to put different things in, that I found on the internet but non of them worked.

I am using opensuse 11.2 KDE. I hear sound only in headphones but not in speakers of laptop COMPAQ presario 2700. /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf looks like this:options snd slots=snd-intel8x0# W60f.Zmi7iE4Vbq5:82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio Controlleralias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
When I play audio, the sound comes only out of the laptop speakers, not the headphones that are plugged in. I downloaded ALSA mixer and nothing on it seems to help, although at the top in the middle it says Intel IbexPeak HDMI, which I guess is my sound card.
I might have a different problems as I have a newer laptop, a HP dv6-2170us with intel i5 cpu. I had no wireless with the 2.6.31 kernel so I upgraded to the 2.6.34 and had to manually compile my wireless driver. Everything works great now except the sound issue. I thought it use to work out the box with the old kernel, but then again I might be wrong. I knwo it works in the "other os" dual booting and all. Its a not a huge issue, but hopeing I could resolve it. Here is some of the info from reading some of the other posts. the model=dell-vostro I just tried to see if that works, which is doesnt, so thats why thats in my sound.conf file.
Have I missed anything? I have tried the fix here: Audio coming from both headphone and laptop speakers - Page 3 - openSUSE Forums page 3 about adding a repo and upgrading, but that upgrade wants me to revert back to the older kernel in which case I dont have wireless support or acpi working proporly, so thats not a doable thing for me.
I have an issue where my laptop speakers work just fine, but when I plug in headphones, I get no noise. I'm using openSUSE 11.4.I found others with the same issue, but this guy's solution looks like he might be using some different version and his solution doesn't work (can't find the file he edited).
I am new to fedora 13. My problem is that I can not hear any sound from my laptop's internal speakers (that works f9 in windows--so no h/w probs!) but when I connect external headphones, everything is heard.I have tried several commands from various internet sources since past one week. I don't understand many of the commands that I have run, but that has somehow helped me to run media files and hear sound on HEADPHONES.
I'm having an issue with my computer and the headphones. When I plug in the headphones into the headphone jack, the sound plays through the headphones but it also plays through the speakers as well at the same time. I've attempted to play around with the sound settings to see if I can get this issue resolved but I have not been able too. Computer specifications are in my signature.
I'm just installed 10.04 on a new Gateway DX4300. The integrated sound card is a Realtek AC1200. Sound works great, however, I'd like the rear input to mute when I plugin my headphones in the front input. Where can I configure this? Here's some basic information:
I don't want to monitor my inputs. In other words: My microphone input plays through my speakers, adding a lot of undesirable noise from the mic. I can mute the mic inputs in alsamixer and/or in the Pulse volume control. This works to get the mic out of the speakers--but it also mutes my mic entirely, so I cannot record audio or use Google Talk. I want the microphone muted in my output, but available to my apps.
(I try to get on the Pulse bandwagon but it is so hard--I thought this was exactly what it was supposed to do, give easy mixing control over inputs and outputs. But I have to search for "fixes" with every single Ubuntu release for two years now, ever since it was first included. Ok, venting over, time to get it working!)
I'm using Linux Mint 8, kernel 2.6.31-12 (and I tried several other distributions and had the exact same problem) on my FSC Amilo Pro 3525, where I have Intel HDA (ICH7) and Realtek 883. My problem is that when I plug in my external speakers, they do not mute the internal ones.
I've searched and searched the forums and came up with a half-baked solution where in alsamixer I - almost - mute front, and bring master to maximum, and in that way I hear the internal speakers just a little.. and the external ones play at maybe 1/3 of their normal volume. Every time I reboot I have to do this again. I can't mute front entirely because then it mutes all sound.
I tried adding various options to alsa-conf, which seems to be a fairly often suggested solution, including the one where I identify the model of my notebook, and it did not help.
Now. When I tried to find the answer, I came across several tutorials that suggested adjusting options in volume control, etc, inlcuding jacksense, that I found I don't have listed.
Being pretty ignorant about Linux, I came to the conclusion that it might be Pulseaudio that's causing the problem. For instance, alsamixergui shows Pulseaudio as card. I did try preventing Pulseaudio from loading, did not help.
