Angry Sound problem in Acer laptop


Hi, I have installed Ubuntu (64-bit) in my Acer laptop. And I am unable to hear any sound by my laptop's speaker but when I plugged in external speakers. I can hear the sound by the external speakers. The audio device is Intel Corporation 82801H (8280H). Please help me to hear laptop's speaker.
Best wishes.

About which Acer Notebook you're talking excactly? You must know there are more the just one model on the market ;-)
BTW did you already unmoute everything you can find?

And maybe your Notebook is listed at
http://linux-on-laptops.com or http://tuxmobile.org

Do you have two sound cards in that?

Post audio part of the output of

#lspci -vvv


Try installing another mixer like kmixer, alsamixer....

Maybe the laptop speakers are not ok?

Another thing is that you may need special options in your configuration files for ALSA. See the alsa-project website.
