View Full Version : [ubuntu] Voluime knob goes crazy

I have a fresh install of Intrepid on a Toshiba Satellite U305. I got my wireless working with madwifi, but now there's another problem. The volume control knob on the laptop cannot be touched, because if I touch it the volume moves all the way either to 0 or 100 and keeps on going, and the volume icon stays on the screen, interrupting all other keyboard inputs... I have to reboot because the nothing works as it should...

To clarify: no matter how little I move the volume knob in either direction, the volume OSD shows the volume going to 0 or 100, and the OSD stays flashing on the screen forever. Meanwhile, the keyboard behaves strangely -- I can't type letters, though I ctrl-alt-delete works -- and I can't launch programs.

Any ideas?
