    Dell vostro 1015 laptop speakers problem

    Hello,
    I use the Dell Vostro 1015 with Celeron 900 for about 10 days. It has a good value for money. A major problem is the playback speaker (too thin and much too quiet). There is only one of the front speakers installed through two tiny slits softly radiates extreme. Therefore, hardly audible. With normal audio playback, as with all other notebooks I have star type 4, since the notebook is priced very. Any help regarding this topic is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Re: Dell vostro 1015 laptop speakers problem

    Hello,
    After a fresh installation of Jaunty on a Dell Vostro 420, can not hear any sound. Knowing that this PC uses a Realtek ALC662 chip (it's easy to know you type alsamixer in a terminal and we look top left).
    Here's how I solved my problem

    - look at the site of Realtek or touslesdrivers to find the latest driver for linux. For the moment they are at version 5.12

    - you download so LinuxPkg-5.12.tar.bz2

    - it decompresses the file
    Hope this will help.

    Dell vostro 1015 sound problem in linux

    Hello,
    Download the alsa driver on, the last time: alsa-driver-1.0.21.tar.bz2 (do not hesitate to test a version recent)
    Open a terminal and start where the file was downloaded careful not to use a directory like 'My Drivers' because of space problem for the. / configure generates the make files in the right place!
    Code:
    cd Office
    unpack and compile the driver
    Code:
    tar-xjf alsa-driver *. tar.bz2 cd alsa-driver *. / configure - with-cards = hda-intel make sudo make install
    Reboot and everything works.

    Hello,
    You can also alternatively edit your / etc / modules:
    sudo gedit / etc / modules and add it:
    # ALSA portion
    Code:
    alias char-major-116 snd 
    alias snd-card-0 snd-xxxx
    # OSS / Free portion
    Code:
    alias char-major-14 soundcore 
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-card -0
    # card # 1
    Code:
    alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss 
    alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss 
    alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss 
    alias sound-service- 0-8 snd-seq-oss 
    alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
