Intel 82801G HDA can use several different codecs. Can you be more specific? (mainboard, or laptop model, for example).

 

do you think you will able to help me? elsewhere I saw people being advised to install a new kernel to correct this type of problem. is that what I should do?

Have you checked your mixer settings? Have you checked if the drivers are installed under Mandriva Control Centre--> Hardware? Do you get sound out of the headphone socket?

No, it's almost sure you won't need a kernel upgrade to fix this. You may need to blacklist the pc-speaker module, or pass certain switches to your snd-hda-intel sound module, but it's almost certain that no kernel upgrade is needed.

What do you get if you give

lsmod  | grep snd

in a ROOT console?

To clarify. You need to start up your konsole/terminal, via your menu in the Tools section or by doing Alt & F2 then type: konsole. Once your konsole/terminal is running type: su press enter then enter your root password and press enter.

 

Now run the command that scarecrow posted.

the mixer setting all are set correctly.

under drivers it shows "snd_hda_intel [alsa]"

no sound out of the headphones

If it's just the headphones you have a problem with, then it's "simply" a matter of passing the correct model argument to the snd-hda-intel driver. The two most probable candidates for your laptop are either "3stack" or "fujitsu" (and yes, I know you do NOT have a Fujitsu laptop...). But better, before making any suggestions, give us the console output of the above command.

Would you also include the output of

grep sound-slot /etc/modprobe.conf

and

arecord -l

Do you have a volume control on the laptop? I have this on my Tosh laptop, and I have to use this to increase/decrease the volume, as well as being able to do it with the software. Once I had the volume on max (software) but couldn't hear anything, and it was because I hadn't increased it using the hardware switch on the laptop. It might not be this, since if you had sound working before, it could well be something to do with hda_intel for your card.

 

I also found this:

 

http://www.linux-on-laptops.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1488

 

and check this, since it also has instructions on what to do:

 

http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php...ix:Vendor-Intel

 

it also might help.
