Unhappy Mint Maya, Acer Aspire 7730, earphones does not mute speakers, please guide me.


hi,

when I plug in my headphones, the speakers is still on.

I am aware that this is a common problem, but all the solutions I have seen have been on a different level, I don't know much about computers, and I had all to much trouble installing the OS to go and fiddle where I don't belong.

the speakers are terrible,so turning them completely off would be as good a solution as any.

system specs.
Acer Aspire 7730

Linux Mint Maya

Gnome Alsa mixer
Version: 0.9.7~cvs.20060916.ds.1-3
that program mentions the following as my sound card:
Nvidia MCP77/78 HDMI

the headphones and the jack worked with win 7

Stab a pen into the speakers and destroy them? Only kidding.

Is this a hardware issue or do you not have this problem using Windows or whatever other operating system there was before you installed linux?

Either way this might help you.

Hah! I would stab them to death if I could!

Nope, not a hardware issue.

sorry to say, those settings mentioned in the link don't seem to isolate the headphones from the speakers :/
