Ubuntu feisty volume too quiet?

Just in case someone else comes looking for the solution to this problem like I did tonight 🙂 I found this link by googling a little.

Here’s the solution if you don’t like clicking…

Try adding this to your /etc/modprobe.d/options (or alsa-base) file:

options snd-hda-intel model=XXX

Replace XXX with one of the quoted values in the list below (remove the quotes)

I used the “3stack” option for my Toshiba Satellite laptop with Intel hda audio and it worked perfectly. 🙂
