Re: Sound in both speakers and headphones on HP Pavilion.
I am SO glad I came across this thread, and holy CRAP was I surprised when this worked!
I am using an HP Pavillion dv7-3060US laptop, running 9.10 64-Bit.
My headphone jack works perfectly now (I actually have 2 jacks, both work perfect) AND my mic still works!!
Oh man I am so happy right now, this just makes my Ubuntu install ALMOST perfect
Ok, enough about how happy I am....for those of you who read this, and are using an HP Pavillion DV7 laptop, I followed this link and it worked for me. I added both lines to my alsa-base.conf file, that is, the 'options snd_hda_intel model=hp-dv5' line, AND 'options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1' line. I should also mention that I followed the steps listed here from the official Ubuntu wiki to update to the latest version of the pulse-audio driver.
Again, my speakers are working, my mic is working, and the sound behaves appropriately when headphones are plugged into either one of my jacks.
The only minor issue is that the sound is much lower than it is when I'm in windows, but its not a big enough issue to make me want to sign onto windows just to listen to music.
Thanks again for whoever posted that 1st link, helped me tremendously!
*EDIT* I updated my driver FIRST, then followed the steps SECOND. This is on a FRESH 9.10 install, and it works flawlessly. Also, at least preliminary results show that this has fixed the rather annoying shut down BEEP noise that I had been experiencing.
