Asked by Krishna on 2009-12-23

There is no sound from Laptop's Internal Speakers in UBUNTU 9.04..
Perfectly ok when connecting External Speakers..

I have Upgraded Alsa to 1.0.19 and then to 1.0.20 and still No Sound From Internal Speakers..
Everything else is perfect.. PCM, speakers or Front, Master all Full Volume..

The problem is not that I can get a faint sound from Headphones..
When I connect woofer or headphones, with my present sound settings, sound gets extraordinarily amplified and really perfect sound...
Problem only with Built-in Speakers..

I had posed this first as a bug.. i got a reply that I need 9.10 to solve this problem..
I really like to stay with 9.04 and 9.10 doesn't support certain things...

Is there a way to solve this without moving to 9.10.....

Please read the last remark from Emilie in the URL link I gave you.

I will give you the link again:
