Try these steps:

1.Go to Menu > Applications > Preferences > Sound to bring up the Sound Preferences window.

2.Under the Hardware tab, change Profile to Analog Stereo Duplex from the drop-down menu.

3.Under the Output tab, change Connector to Analog Output (LFE)/Amplifier from the drop-down menu.
