    Weird sound on login but no sound after that?

    Hi experts

    I'm new to Linux and I'm having a sound problem.

    Laptop: HP DV7/Intel/Nvidia. The newest Ubuntu (9.04 I think)

    I can see others have problems with the sound too, but it seems I have a different problem.

    On the Login screen I kind of have sound. It sounds like bongo drums beeing hit rapidly, This works both on the internal speakers and on the headphone jack.

    BUT, as I said, it doesn't sound right and after login, I have NO sound.

    Anybody that can help me?

    If you search for "no audio" or similar stuff, you'll see that this seems to be a major bug for 9.04

    I have no sound either
    Good luck!

    Ok, i had the same Problem, I'm using the same Notebook.
    Everything else works fine...

    Here's the solution. Maybe you have to repeat it after a kernel update or so, so make sure you bookmark this Page or save it elsewhere

    Open the alsa config-file

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
    Add the following line to the end of the file

    Code:
    options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4 enable_msi=1
    Reboot and have fun!

    @cbender

    You are a champ sir; the line:

    options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4 enable_msi=1
    Did the trick!
