    Update your install:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo update-grub
    Reboot. Now this to update alsa. Using a Terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal"
    Add the ubuntu-audio-dev ppa:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    Now install:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r)
    Reboot
    Check your levels in alsamixer.
    Code:
     alsamixer
    Press <F6> to select the correct soundcard.
    Press <F3> to show playback levels. <F4> selects capture levels [or use <Tab>]
    Use the left/right arrow keys to select and up/down arrow keys to change levels. <M> to mute/unmute.
    Go to "System ->Preferences ->Sound" and make sure the correct soundcard is default and adjust your profile on the hardware tab.
    On the output tab choose the correct device.
    I followed all the instructions and now my internal speakers are working properly. I have no understanding of how these commands work, but they do! Also I notice in other posts some people having problems with simultaneous output from speakers and headphones, but when I plug in my headphones, internal speakers do turn off as expected.

    Thanks!

    Lidex

    I did as you suggested and ran the alsa script in the live environment and compared the result with that I get from the installed version. Lots of info there, as you know. No difference jumped out at me, altho I have to be honest and say I did not do an exhaustive line-by-line comparison beyond the first part that same to contain most of the data relating to system hardware and software.

    Regards

    Re: laptop internal speakers don't work

    So I have to admit that I am brand new to using Linux, and don't really know what I am doing. My laptop just ran an update this morning and now my internal speakers no longer work. I tried rerunning the scripts that I used to make them work earlier but it is not working. i am only getting the following line:

    E: Couldn't find package linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-28-generic

    here is my information again:

    thanks for your time

    Same here .. fire up the terminal and run command to remove latest kernel, then go to the Sound preferences and choose appropriate profile:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude remove linux-image-2.6.32-28-generic
    Next time, before you proceed with update, check via commandline, if the PPA Alsa modules are part of the system:

    Code:
    $apt-cache search 2.6.32-27|grep alsa
    linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.32-27-generic - Ubuntu supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32 ALSA snapshots.
    linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.32-27-preempt - Ubuntu supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32 ALSA snapshots.
    linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.32-27-server - Ubuntu supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32 ALSA snapshots.
    linux-headers-alsa-driver-2.6.32-27-server - Header files related to linux-alsa-driver-modules-lucid version 2.6.32 server
    linux-headers-alsa-driver-2.6.32-27-generic - Header files related to linux-alsa-driver-modules-lucid version 2.6.32 generic
    linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-27-server - Ubuntu-supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32-27-server ALSA snapshots
    linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-27-generic - Ubuntu-supplied Linux modules for version 2.6.32-27-generic ALSA snapshots
    .. as you can see, there are no modules for the latest kernel:
    Code:
    apt-cache search 2.6.32-28|grep alsa

    This should be fixed in maverick, if you don't mind upgrading. That would free you from the work-arounds. Or try a newer kernel from here:

    Re: laptop internal speakers don't work

    Hello,

    After installing Ubunto 10.10 on my laptop, sound was not working properly. Thanks to Ubuntu forums and lidex, I could get it working. I am the OP of this thread.

    I recently found out the sound is broken again. It only works on jack, ie, headset. The laptop speakers don't work.

    http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=6a...24af54210a7348 has detailed information about the hardware.

    At the end of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf I have
    options snd-hda-intel model=ideapad

    How can I fix it again?
