Sound problem Hp pavilion dv6

Hi all
im new to linux world and I like it but I have just only sound card problem that it does not work all the time
my sound card is HD 82801i intel so please help to fix this problem

since 2 days i read all the information i tried to follow it but no way

thank you

Which version of openSUSE have you installed? And which desktop do you use, ie Gnome/KDE3/KDE4.1/KDE4.2 etcetera ?

And do you see any error messages?

You might be able to get an idea of errors by opening a terminal and typing (or simply copying and pasting) -

sudo cat /var/log/messages | grep fail

…and pasting the output here.

dv5 ? dv6 ?

In the case of a dv5, typically a user will add the line to the start of their /etc/modprobe.d/sound file:

options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1 model=hp-m4

save the change, reboot and test. Sometimes its necessary to update alsa to the latest version (there are rpms for that, which I can point you to if necessary).

Note, to edit the /etc/modprobe.d/sound file, you need to open a terminal or a konsole and type:

  • in gnome: gnomesu ‘gedit /etc/modprobe.d/sound’
    *]in kde: kdesu ‘kwrite /etc/modprobe.d/sound’
    enter root password when prompted for a password. Add the line at the start of the file. Save the change, reboot and test.

yes thank you very much and sorry for delayed
i just did your steps and now it is Ok

Congratulations. Glad to read it worked.
