I tried changing to "fujitsu/laptop" in /etc/modprobe.conf (because "rmmod snd-hda-intel && modprobe snd-hda-intel model=ref" won't work- keep on saying "ERROR: Module snd_hda_intel does not exist in /proc/modules" without any success- they simply don't affect my mic or speakers- speakers work, mic-no.

If that helps, my laptop is Gigabyte W551U, here's the specification:

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...ProductID=2297
I have 3 sound jacks in front of my pc and none anywhere else.
I hope these things help.

I can't express how grateful I am that you're working on my problem.
Thanks again and I hope I'm not too much of a trouble for you. And that we'll find a solution one way or another.

Unfortunately, I can't help you with Gentoo related build issues. I don't use that distro (or any of its derivatives). What I can tell you is that you need the latest alsa driver, because the version you have doesn't support your audio chip at all (model=ref isn't a valid definition for that chip either).

I'd suggest starting a new thread asking for distro specific help, and once you have that, I can jump back in and work on the driver directly.

This means that when your kernel was configured, before compiling, the sound drivers were included, but not as separate modules which can be loaded after the kernel is running. This is unusual and unwise. The only way to change the sound drivers is to change kernels -- get a kernel which was properly configured or configure and compile a kernel yourself.

oh, well, so no simple answer...

So if I understand correctly, i can't solve my problem without messing with the kernel, is that what you say?

Do you think I can get the mic working if I use say a virtual windows or something like that? Cuz I really have no idea how to recompile my kernel and I'd rather not reinstall the whole OS, as i don't have time for this right now and i made it so comfortable and pretty.

Anyway, again thanks for the replies, you're all so kind...

Try rebuilding as root. This looks like a permissions issue.
