    Re: ATTENTION HP dvX laptop owners with speaker sound issues ...

    Thank you, Nallen00!! I am a complete Ubuntu n00b, but my husband convinced me to give it a go (read: formatted my brand new laptop & installed Ubuntu when I wasn't looking). It's ok, I didn't want Vista anyway (<shudder>)

    Anyway, I have an HP dv6 and my sound wasn't working, either. Your directions were easy to follow, I only got hung up once, and that was when I didn't enter the command correctly.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Now my spiffy laptop is spiffier!

    Re: ATTENTION HP dvX laptop owners with speaker sound issues ...

    hi there! im using an hp pavilion dv2 and i can hear some sound when im using a headphone i did the command below

    Code:
    #> ./configure --enable-dynamic-minors
    #> make
    #> sudo make install-modules
    #> sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base
    [add 'options snd_hda_intel model=hp-dv5' sans quotes to the bottom of the file, even if you have a dv4, etc.]
    #> sudo reboot
    and after doing it even the sound coming from my headphones disappeared.. but the weird thing is i hear a beep sound everytime i shutdown my laptop or if i use the terminal and if i press the left and right arrows i can hear a beeping sound.

    can somebody help me with this.

    We've had so many issues with using any other OS apart from what has shipped with them (namely vista).

    I heard that HP entered into an agreement with M/S to not provide support for any other OS apart from Vista. I don't agree with that.

    The problem arising after installing the alsa snapshot could be because your mixer levels are turned low or muted. For this, please start alsamixer (terminal>alsamixer) and check the sound levels. Hope this solves the problem.

    The fact about HP not supporting any other OS other than Vista(and 7 now) is true, and this can be confirmed by one call to their customer care number.

    Re: ATTENTION HP dvX laptop owners with speaker sound issues ...

    Thank you so much for posting this. After more than a month of trying other solutions that never made any difference, this one finally worked and I'm listen to music on my HP dv5-1334 as I type this.

    One note for anyone else using Kubuntu Jaunty, I followed the instructions in the original post almost verbatim, but I had to change "sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base" to "sudo kate /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf".

    Thumbs down Re: ATTENTION HP dvX laptop owners with speaker sound issues ...

    Also big thanks from myself to nallen00 and all the alsa-folks. It works great on my HP Pavilion DV6-1260sg. The file is called alsa-base.conf. Use model=hp-dv5 even for the dv6. I called alsamixer from the terminal afterwards to put all levels to max because I can reduce them afterwards in my apps.

    Re: ATTENTION HP dvX laptop owners with speaker sound issues ...

    I thought I should put an update in here.

    I booted up my laptop this morning and found a few updates waiting for me. I can't remember exactly, but something about the linux kernal (when I boot up now the big string of numbers for the linux kernal version now ends in 16 instead of 15).

    Anyway, I performed the update, rebooted, and was surprised to find I no longer had sound. Again.

    So I performed these steps again (also the alsa-base.conf file already had the proper model listed this time).

    But after a reboot, I now have sound again. I don't know why the update undid the changes from this tutorial, but it did.

    Thanks so much, I am a complete noob (15 mins in) and your walk through was easy to follow and has Worked!

    I do have one question though: the speaker volume even at max is pretty soft, is there anyway I can increase the volume?

    Thanks again man
