    Dell Studio 15 - Headphone Jack Not Working (Speakers Work)

    I have a Dell Studio 1558. It has two headphone jacks. Speakers work perfectly out of the box, however when I plug headphones in, sound doesn't work. Any suggestions?

    I have this exact same laptop with the exact same problem. There is sound, but it is veeeeery low, and I can barely hear it. I tried uninstalling pulse, and playing with also, but I got nothing. I am reeeeeally starting to hate proprietary hardware.

    Yo. Fixed it. See here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...85&postcount=3 and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HdaIntelSoundHowto. In short, put "options snd-hda-intel model=del-eq" into "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf".

    I was having the same problem (Dell 15 Ubuntu 10.04). Solution worked great, I just want to point out what i assume to be a typo from demizer.

    "del-eq" should read "dell-eq"

    in the "options...." line of the alsa-base.conf file. (At least I needed to make that correction).

    Thanks

    I have found that dell-m6 works better than dell-eq

    I have a Dell studio 1747 | Intel core i7 | 4GB RAM

    so for those who don't know try this:

    Open a terminal window
    type: sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
    when gedit opens, just paste options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6 on the last line, save it, restart computer. See if that works!


    FILE TO EDIT: /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

    LINE TO ADD:
    options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6
