    Thumbs down Speakers not working with ALSA??

    I have an HP-dc5800 computer, and my internal speaker was not working, no matter what i did. However, i could get sound with headphones.

    Here is what i did to fix it. It may work for you.


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


    Add
    options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4 enable_msi=1

    to the end of the file. I changed model=hp-m4 to model=hp-dc5800. So,
    changing the model to the model of your computer may work.

    Underneath that, i put in;

    options snd-hda-intel enable=1 enable_msi=1 single_cmd=1 power_save_controller=1


    reboot, and sound worked fine.


    Hopefully this will help someone.

    The headphones jack works for me, but have you gotten the speaker to work?
