View Full Version : [all variants] Problem with Realtek ALC889 codec on Cougar Point chipset

April 9th, 2011, 07:50 AM
Hi all,

I'm having problems getting any sound to come out of this chip. The chip seems to be correctly detected (right name, etc.) and ALSA even lets me change the volume. However, no sound actually comes out of the card. Here's the relevant output from lspci -vv -n

Additionally, I found this post on LKML [1], which seems to indicate that the right device IDs were added (which is probably why the driver is autodetected). However, I'm still having problems. Thoughts?
