Has anyone had any luck getting the sound card to work or found drivers
the sound card, MCP51 High Definition Audio, for an Aspire 9300?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have an ASUS M2NPV-VM motherboard with the MCP51 HDA on the board. My HWINFO is as follows:
......while working albeit with clicks and pops and squeel but otherwise I have sound ASUS:/lib/modules/18.104.22.168-0.3-bigsmp/kernel/drivers/md # hwinfo --sound 32: PCI 10.1: 0403 Audio device [Created at pci.286] UDI: /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pci_10de_26c Unique ID: wRyD.WL+f1WXqJn7 SysFS ID: /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:10.1 SysFS BusID: 0000:00:10.1 Hardware Class: sound Model: "ASUSTeK MCP51 High Definition Audio" Vendor: pci 0x10de "nVidia Corporation" Device: pci 0x026c "MCP51 High Definition Audio" SubVendor: pci 0x1043 "ASUSTeK Computer Inc."

It apears that in 10.2 at least, the 'snd_hda_intel' driver is loaded. I have a problem and have submitted a bug report where the sound completely goes away if I adjust the volume from within any sound player while KMIX is also loaded and can only be reset by attempting to load a bogus 2nd card, causing an error during initialization of the bogus card, doing an abort and for some reason, that restores the sound. Simply logging off or resetting/restarting the sound system without a reboot or doing the above jumping through hoops does not work, however, I do have sound and none of the other drivers seem to work including ones on the Nvidia web site. The ones the default installation in 10.2 selected at least allow me to have sound as long as I adjust the volume with KMIX off or only using KMIX and remembering not to use the volume slider within an application.
IF you find a better solution, I *REALLY* would appreaciate a ding because the 'whistle' when any sound is playing is annoying, but better than silence.
~~~ Thanks for the reply Richard.
I should have mentioned that I am running Suse 10.0. I sent an e-mail to Asus; wish me luck.
Any solutions I find I'll post.
