Hey all!
I just got my laptop today and the first thing I have done was get rid of Vista and install Ubuntu.

It's working great but the first noticeable thing was that the startup sounds and all the other sounds are stuttering/echoing.

Can anyone please help?
Thank you so much!

This should solve your dv4 sound problems:

gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base
and add this to the end of the file:

options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1
Hope this works for you

I had a lot of trouble with an HP Pavilion dv4. This fix worked right away! It did require a reboot.

Thanks

Actually I need help from you guys with HP DV4 computers.

When you type "gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base"

Can someone print that out here so I can see the out put?

Please and thank you for all your help everyone.

Finally!!! I'vce been looking for this! GREAT!!!! Now my only other issue with my HP DV4 and ubuntu is slow internet speeds. I've already disable ipv6 (is on by default) that deffinitly increased my speed... downloading a large segmented .rar file with a gui usenet newsreader from astraweb news-server: on vista with newsleecher average speed 700.00 kbps; In Ubuntu with pan before disabling ipv6 average 95.00 kbps, after disabling ipv6 average 140.00 kb/ps

How can I get the same performance from wifi in Ubuntu Linux as I get in Vista? Please help with any ideas. I apoligize if this is the wrong thread.

system: Hp pavilion dv4 1120us intel core 2 duo dual core 64bit 3gigs ram, broadcom wifi

I realize this thread was started for the sound problem, but i have been having such a hard time searching the depths of the net for info regarding the HP DV4 specifically and it seems like this may be where that is... does anyone know another resource for help with the HP DV4 and various linux distributions? I'm sure it's obvious I'm a newb, But I'm really interested. and motivated to learn... so, thanks for any info.

Well, I just replied to another thread but thought I'd add this here since a few of you have the DV4-1155SE like I do:

I have an HP DV4-1155SE. I was able to get the sound working with the following alsa-base config:



alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-1

I also had to set the default mixer track device by selecting PCM. I had to do the same thing for the sound icon on the taskbar.

Ah, i have a hp pavilion 1275mx and am still having the same problem. i can hear audio through my headphones but not my internal speakers.

I tried this thread too, but didn't work for me as I got an error during the package config:

I know I'm being a little but of a traitor here, but if you just can't seem to get things working, and need a working operating system, I just checked and I think that Windows 7 Beta is still able to be downloaded from Microsoft.

I tried it, and thought that it was Vista- but fixed in many ways (if that's possible), the fact that it is a bets didn't seem to make it that klunky or malfunctional

This is a just in case/last resort!

I have an HP dv4-1222nr and none of the fixes on this thread worked. I started a thread for the HP dv4-1222nr, but someone thought I should have just posted to this thread. Anyway here is the HP dv4-1222nr thread:

- Windoze comes free with this laptop if we wanted that. No need to wait for another version of an antique OS.

The following steps will enable sound on the internal speakers for the HP dv4-1225dx

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base

Add the following lines:

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-1

perform sudo reboot after saving your changes


Thank you, NaplesBill, for your posting on this fix!

I'm contemplating purchasing this notebook at Staples tommorow. Are you guys (with the DV4 1222nr) experiencing any issues other than sound? It looks like from the other thread some DV4 (not 1222nr) user is experiencing low throughput with wifi.

Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

the following worked (for the most part) on my Asus F6A-2:

options snd-hda-intel model=6stack
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1
options snd-hda-intel single_cmd=1

sound is still low on music or movie playback and no drums at start, but event sounds are loud and clear. I'll keep working on it.

I just got my hands on a HP Dv6-1030 and am having the same problems with the sound, actually it is headphones and the speakers.
ARRGGG everything else is so smooth with 9.04 I hate to give it up.
I have tried the alsa base fix but to no avail.
any word on Alsa comming up with a stable driver?

Go ahead and try "options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1" anyways. If something screws up then you can easily just erase the changes you made since it's only a sound configuration file.

Thank you very much! My laptop is DV4T-1000. I have been working on the sound issue for several days. The echoing electric sound not only affect the speakers, it also make the movie playing liking using a scratch DVD(of course there is no sound, but the pictures are also affected.)

Google several website and follow other instructions to restore the sound driver, add new plugins, etc... Nothing changes.

This TWO-LINE code solve the sound problem perfectly. Thank you again.

am newb to Ubuntu 9.0.4 - had a number of initial problems with getting printers setup; wireless, etc. but was able to work through them - but NO SOUND anywhere, such as in YouTube, etc. and is still kicking my ****!

okay, found this thread through a lot of digging - have basically tried everything I can think of, followed numerous guides to reload ALSA, etc. - have HP Pavalion 8280us, which is older machine - doesn't appear my sound card is recognized, etc. - so where do I start!?

BTW - when I click on shutdown, do get a beep, so know soundcard DOES WORK!

Hi concerto,

You need type gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf not gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.
