suse 11.1 No Sound / Audio SOLVED

Ive probably spent about 10 hours trying to fix the ‘no sound’ issue for 11.1 installed on a HP dv7 laptop.

Long story short, what ended up working for me was editing:


and changing the contents to:

options snd slots=snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1 model=hp-m4
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel

Hope this saves someone else the hours I have spent.

Congratulations. Glad to read it worked.

Sorry to read it took you 10 hours. Next time, post sooner. I make it an effort to help users fairly quick. I’ve been telling openSUSE users with HP DV5’s and DV7s to use that setting “enable_msi=1 model=hp-m4” for months now. If you search on “dv7 sound” you should see some posts with that recommendation.

But I most definitely appreciate your sharing. If you find any other useful tidbits, please post/share.
