Facts please
Which edition? (gnome KDE ...)
Don't expect us to use half a day (not) to find out what's in your computer - laptops are notoriously hard to find facts about
Which sound chip?
You can either find it in the specs you have or by
Code: Select all
lspci | grep audio

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

disable acpi. in boot option, set acpi=off. this will enable sound, wifi, and bluetooth. the problem is that sound is there but hardware muted. problem with the acpi hotkey driver. don't know about mint, but that's how it is in suse 10.3, ubuntu 7.10, and mandriva 2008.1. I've downloaded mint and will try it now.

but in case of wifi and bluetooth, boot into windows first to enable them using the fn-f5 and fn-f6 keys. then only boot into linux. otherwise, you can also try putting it into sleep mode, and wake it up (works in mandriva and ubuntu, but not suse). try it in mint.

i've tried all these and see my post http://blog.syafril.com/?p=38

hi ,its not the problem with ur laptop only ,most laptops shows the same problem, my acer 5573,toshiba a110 etc . The soluion is not so difficult ,just follow the steps.

1. double click on the volume icon this will show a window with title volume control and your mixer name .
2.check tht any control is not mute ,increase all the volumes.
3.then click on edit button on the menu bar ->preferences-.> tick out- surround ,-center -,side- front ,pcm,and pc speaker.
4. check for volume and mute.

i think this will work, as works on most laptops............best of luck

Hey i did following for my laptop.
first boot from either hard disk or live cd. then press fn+f1 which goes to sleeping mode. then again awake it. sound, wireless card problems got solved. ethernet card i have not tested. it may also work. this also works for fedora 8. still one bug remaining is when i connect headphone sound comes from both head phone and front speakers. is there any solution for the sound to come only from headphone. thanks for all.
