    Question Dell Mini 9 sound issues with 8.10

    I took delivery of my Dell Mini 9 last week and because I'm in Australia I had to get the WinXP version.

    I've since installed Intrepid Ibex (8.10) on it and everything is working really well except for the sound.

    If I turn up the sound using the mixer enough to hear anything I also get a lot of static / white noise.

    To get any sound at all I added the following line to the end of my /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base file

    Code:
    options snd-hda-intl index=0 model=dell
    Does anyone have any ideas on how can I fix this problem?

    Same with my acer aspire 4720z. I expect it to be fixed in the next version of ubuntu. They usually do. Also as this is an extremely popular netbook it is likely that if it is a big issue the community will fix it.
    Sorry I could not help more,

    Its embarrassing to admit, but I think I've resolved my issue.

    Essentially I just had the Speaker and Master volume settings too high. By turning both down a bit, the Speaker more than the master, the static / white noise went away and my music was at an appropriate level to listen to.

    I guess this was just a case of over analysing the problem.

    I have just purchased a Dell Mini 9 XP version. It also had the white noise problem that you have experienced. I fixed this by opening the master volume control properties and adding `pc beep` to the mixer and muting this channel. The white noise dissapears. I hope the problem doesn`t reappear when I install Ubuntu.

    I have a dell mini 9 and the speaker and headphone sound isn't working. I tried adding and muting "PC Beep" but that didn't work. The sound was fine until I downloaded "Audacity" - a recording program. I attempted to turn up the microphone in this program and now I have no sound to my lap top! Can anyone help?
