Ubuntu :: Laptop Speakers Ok / But External Speakers Not Recognized
Feb 17, 2010
I recently installed Kubuntu 9.04 Jaunty on my buddy's laptop. It's working alright, except when we try to plug the external computer speakers into the sound jack in the front, there is no change; it keeps playing through the onboard speakers. My friend and I are getting pretty frustrated because we use those speakers to watch movies with, and the onboard speakers aren't sufficient. If I need to provide any other info, let me know and I'll do so.
My Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 running Fedora 8 continues to play sound out of the laptop speakers when external speakers are plugged in (and no sound out of the external). What can I do to diagnose/fix this? code...
I looked around the settings on Ubuntu and I cannot prevent sound from being played on my laptop speakers when external (more powerful) speakers are plugged in. Windows automatically defers all sound output to the external ones as soon as it is plugged in.
Im using Ubuntu 9.04 in my acer aspire 6930 laptop. Inbuilt speakers in my laptop is working, however the external or surround speaker system say 2.1 connected to my laptop is not working.. i just want to know possible solutions for this challenge..
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 have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on my Toshiba Satellite C655 laptop. When I plug my headphones, they sometimes work, they sometimes don't, but that's not the main problem. When they do work, sound also plays out of the speakers. The only solutions I was able to find were for earlier versions, which don't work for 11.04.
I have a normal install of Ubuntu 10.04 with KDE, gnome, and xfce. Every time i try to do something sound related on my computer, my speakers won't work. I tried headphones, still wouldn't work. The Ubuntu 10.04 documentation didn't help much, and I'm plugging in the speakers correctly.
I have a Lenovo ideapad z560 and have windows and UBuntu both installed on it. I have an External speaker which can be connected to the Laptop through the 3.5mm Jack. The speaker works Flawlessly in Windows System but in Ubnutu They Just Won't Work. I have Searched Almost Everywhere. But Couldn't Find a Solution. My Ubnutu Version is 10.10 Reading some other similar post, i have done this. Run this Command in Terminal.
here is the output:
Using Terminal Open this file for editing:
gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
Insert this line at the bottom:
options snd-hda-intel model=thinkpad(This will work if you have an Intel Processor, I Have Intel Core i5) Save. Close. Reboot. Go to "System ->Preferences ->Sound" and make sure the correct soundcard is default and adjust your profile on the hardware tab. On the output tab choose the correct device.
I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 on my Toshiba laptop. In windows everything is fine but in ubuntu if i plug in external speakers they do not work. Even when the external speakers are plugged in the laptop's internal speakers keep working. I searched for other forums but could not find a solution although many people seem to have this problem.
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:
Code: 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 had the problems with the external speakers not working in Ubuntu 10.04 on ThinkPad Edge (Intel), my friend advised to upgrade to the kernel 18.104.22.168 and it . But!.. in those kernel version internal microphone is not working, though it works in 2.6.32-24-generic-pae.
Until recently, when connected my laptop to the stereo via audio out, i had sound coming only from the stereo. I don't know why and when exactly this happened, but now when the stereo is connected, i get sound from the laptop speakers and stereo speakers simultaneously.Is this a bug? I'd like to mute only my laptop speakers but haven't figured out how. I've tried every setting in "sound" or "audio" or whatever it's called in english, but to no avail.Any ideas how to turn off the laptop speakers?
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.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Sony Vaio VPCEE2E1E. I've been able to avoid any major problems, however, my onboard sound doesn't work. I've tried plugging speakers into the laptop and this works perfectly. I'm rather confused as to why the onboard sound isn't working though.
Here's the output for lspci on my machine:

I installed debian stable but after the install i get no sound from the laptop speakers.my laptop is a acer aspire 9800 with intel hd audio.Headphone works correct with sound but not the internal speakers.the speakers are correct working in windows xp.I want a new better system than xp but if debian do not work with my internal speakers then it is a nogo.
I have a Dell XPS 15 laptop and have installed Slackware 13.0 on it. I'm not getting any sound through the speakers. I tried configuring alsa first. However, I did not have any success. Next I also tried inserting some kernel modules corresponding to sound drivers, which was present in /lib. Again, I'd no sound output.I can get sound through earphones though.I've been stuck with this problem from some time.
I'm running the live 6.0.1 dvd in my Toshiba Satellite laptop and all is working fine except the sound only plays thru the built in speakers. I can't get it to run out the headphone outlet to a set of external speakers.
I thought it was a driver issue, but after messing around with the ALSA mixer a lot, it turned out that when I enabled headphones(or disabled, honestly not sure) that my headphones worked, and when I took them out the speakers worked. Then when I rebooted for whatever reason, only the speakers(built-in) worked. Really, I'm not sure why this is.
When I got them to work there was a switch for the headphones in the graphical mixer(which is what I used, not the ncurses[?] ALSA thing), but I can't seem to find that anymore. It's not a major issue, it just puts me off watching videos and listening to music because my laptop speakers are really low quality. I'd go out to buy a pair of external speakers, but obviously with the audio jack not working, this could be problematic.
I guess I could buy USB external speakers but then the probability of Slackware having pre-installed audio drivers for a cheap generic brand of speakers is so low it doesn't justify the effort of going and buying some, nor the money that would be spent. Willing to enter any commands/w.e. I'll be on Slackware all the time 'cause I need a Linux system right now.
I'm having problems with my ubuntu 10.10 .That's the story..... I've installed a fresh copy of 10.10 from the website of ubuntu, the desktop verison ,32bit , for my medion WIM2160 . So , i don't have any problems with media, wifi or web browsers , but the only problem is that i don't have sound from my internal speakers on my laptop, although i have sound with my headphones (logitech).I will upload the output info from my terminal
I have an acer timelinex 5830tg notebook. After weeks of frustration, i finally have a linux setup that is stable. Thank god for debian. I don't know why I mess with anything else. Anyway, i'm unable to get my built in laptop speakers to work. I get sound through headphone jack, and I hear sound coming from the built in speakers for a split second when plugging in/unplugging my AC adaptor.Let me know if there is any other output needed, which may assist in this issue. Hopefully someone can help me out.
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.
