    loading correct audio driver and kernel module for my HP g6 laptop sound card

    Hi,

    I have and AMD quad core HP g6 2006ax laptop with Dolby advanced auido and altec alnsing speakers on board. But the audio quality is good and volume level is not loud. The OS is ubuntu 12.04.

    Please help me to load the correct sound driver and kernel module for my laptops sound card. The sound card information is as follows:

    arun@ubuntu:~$ lspci -v | grep -A7 -i "audio"
    00:01.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Device 9902
    Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 184a
    Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 18
    Memory at f0444000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

    00:02.0 PCI bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] Family 15h (Models 10h-1fh) Processor Root Port (prog-if 00 [Normal decode])
    --
    00:14.2 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] Hudson Azalia Controller (rev 01)
    Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 184a
    Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 32, IRQ 16
    Memory at f0440000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel
    Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

    From the above output I think the amd audio device is being driven by an intel driver. that's why volume level is low and quality is not good.

    The correct driver (snd-hda-intel) is loaded. The system may have AMD APU, but the sound chip still uses Intel HDA specification: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_H...finition_Audio
