    No Sound From Internal Speakers

    Hi all!

    I'm sorry to dredge this topic up, since I know it's been talked about before, but I've been searching Google for hours and I haven't had any luck yet.

    I installed Ubuntu on my brand-new, fresh out of the box HP Pavilion dv4-1225dx laptop today. I ran Windows first to make sure everything worked (including the internal speakers), but I didn't partition my computer when I switched to Ubuntu - I just took Microsoft completely off.

    Anyway, I can't get sound to play out of my internal speakers. My headphone jack works fine, though. I tried to follow the troubleshooting guide (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting) but I got lost at the "is your sound card supported?" part. I couldn't find my soundcard on the list, but then again I'm not sure what I'm looking for.

    Here's what the computer said my soundcard was when I did the lspci thing:
    00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia
    Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Unknown device 30fb
    Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
    Memory at d2500000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Then the troubleshoot guide started talking about manually installing the drivers, but I don't know how to find out what the driver is. I think my sound card has to be supported - after all, I do get sound out of the headphones - but I really am not very familiar enough with the inner workings of computers to know what's really going on.

    (ps - the sound doesn't work for anything from the internal speakers - no startup sounds, no beeps, no music)

    Thank you so much for helping me out! I know this is such a newbie problem, but I really do appreciate your time!

    Please post output of:

    aplay -l

    Re: No Sound From Internal Speakers

    This is a stupid question but did anyone report this problem to the
    HP Linux forum? I looked but didn't see anything about this.


    HP Resource Center Forums

    I'm installing Linux now on my HP DV4-1155se so it looks like i'm about to have the same problem.

    Re: No Sound From Internal Speakers

    Update:

    I've upgraded to Intrepid, but I'm still not having any luck with getting sound from the internal speakers.

    This is the report from aplay -l:
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: STAC92xx Analog [STAC92xx Analog]
    Subdevices: 1/1
    Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    card 1: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: ATI HDMI [ATI HDMI]
    Subdevices: 1/1
    Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    And from lspci:
    00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
    Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 30fb
    Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
    Memory at d2500000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel
    Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel
    01:05.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RS780 Azalia controller
    Subsystem: ATI Technologies Inc RS780 Azalia controller
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 19
    Memory at d2410000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel
    Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel
    Of course now that I've switched to Intrepid, every once in a while in order to get sound from my headphones I have to 'killall pulseaudio', then go into the sound preferences and switch everything to 'HDA ATI SB STAC92xx Analog'.

    If anyone has any suggestions, I am desperate! I would even be willing to switch operating systems at this point if Debian or OpenSuse or something can just give me sound.
