View Full Version : [ubuntu] HP DV7-6135dx Beats audio (Headphones & BA speakers play at the same time)

January 13th, 2012, 07:10 AM
I have an HP DV7 with Beats audio and one of the issues I'm having with it is when I plug in my headphones, one of my PC's BA speakers still plays music. I think it is the sub under the PC. The rest of them shut off.

Any help would be great.

Has anyone played with different outputs in the volume control?

Also, I would try different models in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf.

gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf For example, add the following line to the end of the file:

options snd-hda-intel model=refThen, restart alsa:

sudo alsa force-reloadIf it doesn't help, repeat the process changing the model keyword (here is the list for your codec):

ref Reference board
mic-ref Reference board with power management for ports
dell-s14 Dell laptop
dell-vostro-3500 Dell Vostro 3500 laptop
hp HP laptops with (inverted) mute-LED
hp-dv7-4000 HP dv-7 4000
auto BIOS setup (default)

Thanks, I have tried changing the sound output setting with no luck.

I tried adding the first line of code you suggested with no change. When I plug in the headphones the Sound output does change to "Headphones" but the Sub speaker is still putting out sound.

I don't know I am supposed to do with the second set of commands. (Where I'm supposed to put them.)

Thanks again for your help.

You need to restart alsa with that command before the line takes effect. That last block means try the options line with a different model= (model=hp, model=hp-dv7-4000), then restart alsa after each new model you try.
