    Acer Aspire 2920Z

    I couldn't get my speaker and mic jack, and the webcam to work. How do I enable them?

    I had some problems with the sound on one of my machines a while ago, but I found a thread on the forums that helped me. Search for the name of your hardware on the forum, and you might find the solution. I know this isn't much help, but it's the best I can do.

    @subzero: yerr, the two jacks in front. My speaker jack is plugged, but sounds still come out from the built-in ones.

    @eirik: suggestion noted.

    As for sound not working, I had to edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base and add the following line to the bottom.
    Code:
    options snd-hda-intel model=acer
    This only applies to those with Intel HDA sound chipsets. Running 'lshw -C multimedia' in a terminal will list what you have.

    Then do the following to apply changes. Alternatively, reboot.
    Code:
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart

    Sound is working fine, but only through the built-in speakers. I just couldn't get the jacks to work.

    Well, I only had sound through my left speaker, and it didn't autodetect whether there was a headphone connected, so at least it sounds fairly similar.
