Speakers on laptop baffling problem

Postby deepakdeshp » Fri Dec 01, 2017 2:03 pm

I am using Mint 18.3 with latest patches applied.CPU is AMD A8. I have 2 speakers left and right. Often when I attach external speakers, and also with only internal speakers there is no sound. When I drill down and speaker icon-->sound setting-->test speakers, I see 6 speakers instead of the 2 that are present.

When test speakers show 2 speakers there is no problem and everything works fine. After every reboot there are either 2 or 6 speakers shown in the sound settings.
Any clues please?
