Ubuntu :: No Headphones Or Microphone In Toshiba Laptop
Sep 26, 2010
I have a Toshiba Satellite A660-056 which works beautifully except that the built in mic and the headphone jack don't work. For the microphone, no input device is listed in the Sound Preferences control panel. When I plug in headphones, the built-in speakers go quiet but nothing goes through the headphones.
Here's the info
Linux satelliteoflove 2.6.32-24-generic #43-Ubuntu SMP Thu Sep 16 14:17:33 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
I have a Toshiba Satellite A660 laptop with Ubuntu 10.04. I am sure that the internal microphone works because when I reboot into Windows it works fine. It does not work in Ubuntu instead. I tried three things:
1) Action: I checked all the volumes, made sure that the microphone is not muted and selected the proper device as "Analog Stereo Duplex". Result: no improvements.
2) Action: I installed PulseAudio to better manage the volumes. Result: no improvements.
3) Action: in the Terminal, I executed the line " sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf " and then added the line " options snd-hda-intel model=toshiba " at the bottom of the page that opened. I saved, closed and rebooted. Result: no improvements.
I executed in the Terminal the command " wget [URL]. The link to where data were uploaded is [URL].
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 onto a Toshiba L30-10W. The built-in speakers work and the headphone jack work, but I can't get the microphone jack to work. I've tried all of the ALSA options (e.g.- options snd-hda-intel model=laptop), but none of them work.
i have toshiba satellite A665 4 days ago i tried to talk with my friend through laptop playback microphone .. i could hear him but he couldn't hear me .. i tried everything but the problem still remains !
I have problems getting my microphone to work. When I try to record something I just get noise.
The following it he output from /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh script: HTML Code: upload=true&script=true&cardinfo= !!################################ !!ALSA Information Script v 0.4.58 !!################################ !!Script ran on: Tue Dec 15 10:09:53 UTC 2009 .....
I installed Fedora 14 on a Toshiba Satellite L650-18X laptop. The on board speakers work fine but when I try to connect external headphones, the sound still comes from the on board speakers and not from the connected headphones. Also the microphone jack doesn't work.
As I searched the web for possible solutions I think the problem is related to the Alsa sound driver. I kindly ask if someone with experience could share details regarding the Alsa configuration for this particular sound driver in Fedora 14 in order to solve this issue.
For users whom wish to install the wireless driver on the Toshiba Satellite L650-18X, Broadcom offers great information on it's official site

Here are the steps the user needs to perform in a terminal window in order to install the wireless driver :
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 feel I am really really close at getting this connected.
The native ath9k driver did not work. I blacklisted this driver and then proceeded to load a windows driver that came with the card through ndiswrapper.
The system sees my wireless router but I could not get connected to the router. I get the circle of death of it trying to connect though.
I then replaced the Network Manager with Wicd.
I try and connect, after setting the preshared key, and it stops at the very end saying it could not obtain an IP address.
I then try to set a static IP, and at the very end it comes back with, "could not contact wireless access point".
I feel I am so close to getting this connected I just don't know if it is a setting on my router I need to change or to look for a different driver. Driver should be fine but I'm no expert.
I have two other computers wireless'ly connected to this router currently and one of them is connected via a dual boot, Ubuntu and Win7, so at the very least these two computers don't have any issues connecting to the router.
Or I am just going to live with WinXP installed on it instead. BTW: I had no problems getting a wireless connection from this laptop when I had WinXP installed, but I have since wiped it off with a clean install of Ubuntu 9.10. Goes to show how much I want to rid myself of Windows on the laptop.
I even installed 8.04 to see if I could make a connection with that version but to no avail I could not. I have since reloaded 9.10.
I currently have a dell studio xps 16.. I'm new to Linux and can not seem to figure out how to force my laptop to play from its on board speakers. The laptop seems to believe there is headphone attached to the port constantly.. I figured this out when I use to run windows.. and my skype calls always activated the speakers.. so i know theres nothing wrong with the speakers (well i hope not). Is there any possible way to ignore the sound ports and force play from the 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.
get the wireless working on my mum's laptop as having to plug it into the router everytime she wants to go online is now becoming an issue for her. I recently upgraded it from 8.04 to 9.04. Ive tried using the Windows Wireless Driver option in System - Admin but to no avail.

I have recently installed Ubuntu on my Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 Laptop. Everything runs great except that the resolution will not go above 800x600. I had this problem before on the same laptop and was able to fix it but cannot find the fix now (I had to wipe my laptop clean in order to remove some pesky Windows partitions and reinstall Ubuntu) I have found several "fixes" but none work. I tried the one below as well as it applies almost perfectly to my problem
"I just installed the latest ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba-Tecra having "Trident Microsystems Cyberblade XP4m32" Monitor. After install resolution is defaulted to 800x600. I followed a method advised in some threads (arount xrandr and cvt) to increase the size (my laptop works with 1024x768 under XP). This was done OK and I obtained the resolution 1024X768 appearing in the drop list resolution options of the Monitor preferences but when I select the option if fails. Alternatively, when I execute $ xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768_60.00 i got the message "xrandr : screen cannot be larger than 800x600 (desired size 1024X76
I also saw a possible fix proposing to add "HorizSync 31.50-48.00" in Xorg.conf but I then I DO NOT have such a file in my /etc/x11/ after ubuntu install (supposing that this will fix my problem !!!)
Boot into recovery mode, when you get to the command line type:
sudo Xorg -configurewhich will create a default /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Add the lines: HorizSync 31.0 - 70.0 VertRefresh 40.0 - 75.0to the Monitor section then reboot."
However when I entered the "sudo Xorg -configure" line my computer spit back saying that "sudo" is not an acceptable command
My Toshiba A300 laptop turns itself on after about 4 minutes from the shutdown. This doesn't happen with Win7. When it turns on, I shutdown using the power off button and it doesn't turn on again. I disabled all the wake options in the BIOS, also I uninstalled the ACPI, but this did not help. I also disabled the WOL in Ubuntu with "sudo ethtool -s eth0 wol d" before the shutdown, but this didn't helped too.
I had screwed up a unsolvable Ubuntu install, so I had to reformat and reinstall. I did all that, installed my apps, but then saw and was convinced to upgrade to 10.10. It took forever, but it downloaded and installed the upgrade package. Since then, I have had a few issues that I had never had in 10.04. The other ones are in their own threads though. So, now when I either close my laptop lid or hit suspend, I can see it do some things, then either A. It goes to sleep. Or B. It just freezes.
No HDD activity, just those messages it displayed for suspending like it does when it works. I have screenshots attached of that. Also, in the default applet that provides you with the sleep option and shut-down, etc, sometimes the option Hibernate disapears. Now, I have seen how the menu is without it and like it that way. I think I need to be looking for a prefrence file for it, because I would like the option Hibernate to be removed from that menu.
1. How can I get the machine to go to sleep properly? This is mainly because I hate loosing what I am doing.
2. How do I remove the option "Hibernate" from Indicator Applet Session 0.4.6?
Capitols v and m not working properly! Toshiba laptop. So far I'm v happy with Ubuntu, works really well! However, I have a madening problem: when typing I cannot use the right hand Shift key with either or if I do, the v looks like $V, and the capitol m ends up giving me a pulldown menu. I assume this is not common to Ubuntu, but maybe it is?
I have a Toshiba laptop with dual boot W7 & Ubuntu 11.4. Evolution Mail Program was installed and running perfect. My mistake was to try to import my e-mail contacts address book backup for evolution,ever since I cannot start it as it shows a notification that it is still migrating my files. I have uninstall and install the same program but unfortunately the issue remains and I can no more start my evolution email application.
I want to make the audio available only on my headset and to turn the laptop speakers off. In windows, when i plug in the headphones, the speakers automatically turn off and audio is output only on the heads but that's not the case with slackware. I was looking in alsamixer and the audio and video configuration, but no success.
I just used Update Manager to upgrade to 10.4 and all I get is the Ubuntu logo screen with the dots and then the screen goes black and there's no other response. This happened after the upgrade completed installing and I received the message to restart the computer. I have never been able to get it to boot.
I can boot fine by selecting the next older kernal although I do get some messages that I don't understand. It all works so I presume it's OK. The kernal that was installed with the upgrade is 2.6.32-24-generic and I've seen other posts about boot problems with it. The laptop is dual boot with Windows XP and Windows boots normally. I saw a suggestion on another thread about booting into an older kernal and then issuing the sudo update-intramfs -u -k command. I tried it and it didn't help.
Next I tried 2.6.32-24-generic recovery mode and I tried the option to fix damaged packages. It seemed to do something although I saw error messages about not being able to find various software sources. I tried a normal boot afterwards and same problem. Recovery mode has another menu option about repairing grub but I don't want to try that. I'm not a power user and this is all over my head. Before I turn the laptop into an unusable door stop,
CPU fan apparently is not working with Debian (or Kernel, I don't know who's responsible for ACPI devices management. ).After setting up lm-sensors to show core temperatures, and running a simple "while(true);" C program, I noticed the fan doesn't turn on until the temperature reaches 80 degrees Celsius, and when it does, it runs at what appears to be full speed (VERY noisy). Also, it stays turned on at that speed even after temperature gets below 35 degrees Celsius. The only way to turn it off is to put the computer to sleep and wake it up again, but if I do the same procedure, it happens again.
I think it is related to some compatibility problem with ACPI devices because when I turn on the computer, I can't get the Fn keys to work, but after I suspend and wake it up, I can control the brightness using the Fn key and use the Play, Pause, etc. buttons. I read this has something to do with ACPI issues, the same as the fan control issues, because "try to suspend and wake up the computer" is something people usually tell to others with this problem (I assume just to confirm the diagnostic).Everything works fine on the pre-installed Windows Vista that came with the computer. It's definitely a compatibility problem.
I've read a lot in forums, even here, but I couldn't get any solution for this. I installed toshset but asks me to enable a Kernel module which I have no idea of how to load. I have no idea of how to load a Kernel module in fact.Also, I didn't want to believe, but I read there's no solution for this (at least, not one which doesn't involve a lot of knowledge on the matter).I'd like to stay with Debian, so I'm doing my last try here before installing other Linux Distro. I hope this problem is about Debian and not all Linux distros.My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L355, Intel Pentium Dual Core T3200. I bought it in the end of 2008, so it's kind of old.
The sound on my system is really low. I am using a Toshiba Tecra M3 laptop with Intel sound.
Here is my uname info: Code: 220.127.116.11-67.fc12.i686 #1 SMP Sat Feb 27 10:00:02 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I tested both Rhythmbox and Gnome Mplayer. Both are low when using headphones and very low when using the laptop speakers. I checked the alsa configuration via alsamixer -c0 and everything looks good. I have attached my alsa-info.txt file.
I have Debian wheezy, and win xp, installed on my Toshiba Satellite P205-S6337 laptop. The laptop speakers do not work when the computer starts up, but they work in windows. After fiddling with the sound preferences and making sure the volume was turned up with alsamixer. I tried plugging in headphones.I could hear sound on the headphones. Then when I unplugged the headphones the laptop's built in speakers work again! This wouldn't be such a problem except I have to plug in and unplug a pair of headphones to make them work.
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.
