I'm going to assume this is an HDA Intel sound card.
TC
I don't see the word INTEL in the following terminal output, so is it correct to assume this isn't an Intel sound card ?

Actually, that prob won't work, no digital out. Reverse that. Can you take a photo of the back where you plug the stereo jack cable into.

Hi!

Just had the exact same problem on a laptop 2 days ago.
I'm addind to Trinidad's post because it was the headphone jack that was flaky.
I tried a few things but when I plugged in a pair of headphones in the jack to test if I had audio output there, I didn't even have to push it all the way in that the speakers began to work.
So, speakers are working now and I blocked the jack to be sure nothing else goes in there ;)

Theory 1 - Previous owner maybe had a pair of headphones plugged in and connector was pulled/broken when the laptop was moved around.
Theory 2 - oxidation ?

Please embed any images directly into your posts, rather than linking off site. For people with lower end machines every mb saved makes a difference
I don't know how to do that - can you provide a link?
Couldn't find anything on this forum with search word "embed"
Thanks.

My photos are less than 1MB, usually ~ 100 to 500 KB range (*.png format)
I checked LL's posting guidelines, under the section Introductions, but it said not to insert images directly into the post as it would take up too much memory, but above you indicate not to link off-site (in this case imgur.com) for any images . I'm confused as this seems contradictory, unless I'm missing something ...

Updated: When I follow the posting guidelines method I get "undefined"

Many thanks for this - backs up what TC said. If you look at the picture of the jack input, from outside the laptop (previous post), the socket doesn't seem to be centred (pushed to the left), so maybe physical damage ...

Apologies. Your instructions are clear - it's just me!
PS. You asked for a photo of the jack input - I put this in reply #22 - could you comment on it - all I can say is it looks slightly off-centre. As always, everyone's help is much appreciated - many thanks.
