Hello guys.
I've just bough a new computer (Sony Vaio VGN-FZ335) And everything is working so fine, except for my headphones. They don't work at all when being inserted, and main speakers keep working...

What can I do to solve this problem?

I'm using Hardy.

Thank you guys

I had that problem with my Vaio too. The solution is in this thread here:

The important part is:


sudo gedit /ect/modprobe.d/alsa-base

Add this text to the bottom of that file:


options snd-hda-intel model=vaio

When you restart you should have sound in the headphone/speaker jack.

Hi, thanks for the answer!
But alsa-base doesn't exist in my system. So I can't edit it.

I've been reading the (superpost) but I couldn't find out how to solve this specific problem.
Thank you!

Strange.

It should be there - how do you know it's not?

If you need to install it, do this:


sudo apt-get install linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils alsamixer

The try that module Vaio thing in the previous post.

ALSA is the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture project, and it supports a lot of different sound cards. You can check out the main page at http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Main_Page and install it to your machine.

One thing to check is to see what sound cards your computer is already supporting. Sometimes there are issues having on-board sound enabled with a sound card. Enter:

asoundconf list

in a terminal, and it should give a list of the available sound cards. There are other tutorials about setting up your default card, but start with trying the volumes on alsa. After you install alsa-base you can edit the volumes with the 'alsamixer' command in a terminal or install the alsamixergui.

Good luck!
