No sound from external device


For some reason, I am not able to get any sound from my external speaker on my Acer Aspire 5738G. When I plug the speakers in, the sound keeps comming from my internal speaker. How can I fix this?



some additional info:

cat /proc/asound/modules
0 snd_hda_intel
1 snd_hda_intel

cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
HDA Intel at 0xf4500000 irq 21
HDA ATI HDMI at 0xf4010000 irq 17

cat /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf

options snd slots=snd-hda-intel,snd-hda-intel

Please take a look at step#9 here:
SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

If these are USB speakers, please also look at this USB headphone article here (as it is also applicable to speakers): USB headphones - openSUSE

I’ve allready tried that, but it doesn’t work. Also when I test the HDMI device, no sound is played (neither the internal or the external speakers).

Got it fixed now

Congratulations on sorting this.
