i have a sony VAIO VGN-NR38S and when i play any audio even when the headphones are plugged in the audio comes out of the headphones fine, but ALSO the laptop speakers.
this is a very annoying problem that i have had with all 3 ubuntu OS's that i have used. if anyone has any ideas on how to fix this problem, no matter how unlikely they are to work please suggest them!
thanks very much for any help you give

In a terminal type lspci and post the output here.
There you'll find which is your audiocard and we'll try to search for an answer.

This has been discussed many times in the forums, so you can speed up the solution searching them.
