No audio on Dell Mini 910 running Ubuntu 11.04

Asked by James Kimbley on 2011-07-29

I have recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a Dell Mini 910 everything seems to be working fine except the audio. All the settings seems to be correct and nothing is muted however no sound can be heard. I know the internal speakers are working.

Could there be any hidden settings that maybe causing this issue?

OK,

Results from Step 3:

http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=5904fc8f0548071a6407937c6b00569c7578f3a8

I have notice the version numbers are not the same for driver version, library version and utilities version. Does this need correcting? If so how do I go about this?

Please try the following workaround solution

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/792712/comments/3

which is part of the following bugreport:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/792712

So try replacing model option generic with model option auto

in the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file....

Then REBOOT and retest sound output using headphones and speakers.

Thanks for your help. Just tried your suggestion.

The external earphones work but the internal speakers still do not work.

Can you help with this problem?
