    This works for my timeline, but when i restart my computer all settings are gone. I have to download the hdaanalyzer again and put the EAPD setting on.
    Do you have any idea what i can do to save the preferences permanent?

    I am using:
    Acer Aspire timeline x 4830tg with Ubuntu 11.04

    Thanks!! It really works for my Timeline 3830TG as well!
    However, when I plugged earphone, the internal speaker keep working.
    I expect when I plug earphone, the speaker should be stopped.
    Do you know how to solve this problem?

    This package worked for me:
    I got sound on restart or after suspend to ram. Got the problem with the earphones solved and got a working mic recording.

      This freezes my system on installation. I can’t even change to another tty to login and kill it. Had to to a hard shutdown :(.

      Sometimes I hate Linux. Its OK on desktops, but the laptop vendors just don’t provide enough compatible drivers to use Linux in a productive environment.

    Didn’t work for me. Got :

    /usr/bin/python: /usr/bin/python : fichier binaire impossible à lancer

    It’s in french. Mean “binary file impossible to execute”

    Any idea ? I’m a newbie 🙂


    You can look for this post here and hope it will be help full for you….cheers

    This fix did not work for me. Disabling EAPD (it was activated in the beginning) did nothing.

    Hi everyone, on an acer 4830tg timelinex I tried the soution proposed in the beginning:
    wget -O
    sudo python

    and then selected “enable” in node 0x1b and selected NO when it asks to reverse.

    It worked for a while but after every update I had to do it again (and then worked until the next update).
    My problem is that after my last update today this solution doesn’t work anymore… Any idea????

    This technique resolved my lack of audio on a Sony Vaio Fit 14-A running Elementary OS Luna. Thanks!
