Livecd or install, laptop internal speakers not working, but headphone does!
go to terminal and type:
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
#copy paste the following 2 options at the end of the alsa-base.conf file in 'gedit'
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1
options snd-hda-intel model=targa-2ch-dig
#quit 'gedit' and save changes
restart your laptop
All other options seem to work fine, network wired or even wifi. Suspend to ram "pauzeren" also works, with or without ati driver. Headphone jack disables sound from speakers, and sound goes to headphone. OSD , volume / brightness, wifi switch, bluetooth switch, touchpad tapping all works fine .
No info about hdmi, microphone, esata, cardreader, fingerprintreader, or the modem sorry, maybe in future I don't own the laptop.
Ati closed Hardware drivers, does give some strange problems with the Mintmenu, and with googleearth, disabling compiz only fixes googleearth. But Thats more Ati related.
ich9 chipset "ahci mode"
-Intel HDA, ALC1200
-Ati hdmi audio
-ati mobility radeon HD3470
I don't know which of the two rules option rules fixed the audio or both, But I just copied both, and it was fixed... so maybe one of the options rules is enough! I got the idea from this link. Although it didn't fix his problem... but it does fix ours
