What hardware are you running? most importantly, what sound card?

I am running 9.04 on a Compaq CQ40 laptop, almost perfectly. I had some sound problems ie, sound via headphone none via speaker. I found this fix on launchpad.

That got my sound going...................however. When I start Ubuntu and decide i wont to use headphones the sound still comes out of the speakers. Unless i start Ubuntu with the headphones pluged in. Then i need to re boot to get my sound back via speaker if I remove the headphones.

Any Ideas?

Hope the link helps
