i can't mute when i plugged in a headphone on my laptop. But it works in Windows 7.

Here comes output from lshw command:


         description: Audio device
         product: 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller
         vendor: Intel Corporation
         physical id: 1b
         bus info: pci@0000:00:1b.0
         version: 03
         width: 64 bits
         clock: 33MHz

         configuration: driver=HDA Intel latency=0
         resources: irq:47 memory:fc220000-fc223fff

I've tried to setup customized module to kernel module:



But it just didn't work as expected.

How does alsamixer show your volume settings? More likely you're muting the wrong channel. – new123456 Mar 24 '11 at 20:00

You don't have the same chip as me, but this worked for me:

options snd-hda-intel model=lenovo-101e 
options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 enable=yes

Of course, as you might guess, I have a Lenovo laptop. This might not work for you.
