    no sound from speakers (Dell Inspiron 15R)

    Hello!

    I've recently installed ubuntu 11.04 in my new Dell Inspiron 15R, but the sound doesn't work from the speakers. It does work with headphones or on windows, but I can't hear absolutely nothing in other ways.
    I've tried to play around with settings, drivers or searching some solution online but with no luck,
    can you please help me with this issue?

    thanks!

    Hi, did you ever work this out? I have the same laptop running ubuntu 12.04 and have sound out of the left speaker but not the right.

    You might try running alsamixer in the terminal and seeing if any of the channel show MM (for muted). If so hit M on the selected channel and then change use the up arrow to increase the volume.

    this thread is quite old, but as far as I remember I didn't find any solution but installing ubuntu again with the latest version (I have 12.04 as well now, and it works well...)

    sorry I can't help you more :/

    good luck!
