View Full Version : Ubuntu Karmic x64 - Cannot switch to external mic

December 9th, 2009, 09:15 PM
Hi guys.

I have an HP dv5 1040eg and a sound chip with the codec IDT 92HD71B7.
I have three jacks in front of my Laptop, two jacks for headphones and one for the mic. Normally theres a jack-sense which reacts to the plugging of a connector to the jacks and then turns of the internal Hardware.
The two headphone connectors work perfectly but the mic jack-sense doesn't work. When i plug it in i still have the internal mic as input source, its sound quallity really is terrible.

I have Alsa 1.0.21 and the latest Pulse audio

I allready tried adding
options snd-hda-intel model=hp-dv5 enable_msi=1
options snd-hda-intel model=hp-dv5
options snd-hda-intel model=3stack
to Alsa-base.conf

Hope you guys can help me.
