[Bug 1556228] Re: HP Notebook Probook 440 G3 HDA Intel PCH horrible sounds while booting


Hi ArnauC,

i already have enabled the Intel Smart Sound, but the noise is still
there, although somewhat better.  Did this COMPLETELY solve the problem
for you?

  HP Notebook Probook 440 G3  HDA Intel PCH horrible sounds while

Bug description:
  At first there was no native recognition of my sound driver (see this [ https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/alsa-driver/+bug/1525554 ] a lot of others a experiencing this problem)
  so there was a workaround to fix that, the notebook has sound output now, but ever since i got these horrible scratching noises while booting, which i dont have booting windows, which is kinda surprising while one could take it for a bios or hardware problem.

  basic workaround for fixing missing sound driver was adding two lines to the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
  options snd-hda-intel single_cmd=1
  options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=1

  with these lines a was able to get sound, but i then have these crazy
  noises while booting.

  the following are some lines from the terminal which might help:

  'lsb_release -rd'

  even adding the right driver and module into /etc/modules (like snd-
  hda-intel model=PCH index=0) did not work, like i found in this thread
  ( https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Soundkarten_konfigurieren/ ) sorry for
  the german thread.

  i dont know what to add anymore. feel free to ask.
