After upgrading from 13.04 to 13.10 Dell's Inspirion 17R subwoofer stoped working.

In Ubuntu 13.04 was workaround by adding in the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf next line:

options snd-hda-intel model=ref

This issue was discussed here: How to activate subwoofer in Inspiron 17r?

After update previous workarounds don't help and I get no sound from any speaker in this case.

Is there some other fix for the latest version?

I have a Dell 17R as well and had to use hdajackretask to get the subwoofer to work again.

  1. Install hdajackretask by installing alsa-tools and alsa-tools-gui.

  2. Open hdajackretask.

  3. Select "Show unconnected pins".

  4. Find pin 0x10 and choose "Internal Speaker (LFE)".

  5. Click "Install Boot Override".

  6. Restart and you should be good to go.
