Headphones issues in toshiba laptop


Sep 13, 2015

I have a toshiba L50D-B laptop running windows 8.1 alongside ubuntuGNOME 14.04.

After an Ubuntu update, I'm having problems with audio.

1.The speaker and headphones play at the same time on Ubuntu.

2. Only the speaker plays audio on windows. Headphones don't work.

I googled my problem and tried alsamixer. A screenshot of the same: http://i.imgur.com/WY0avNS.png

All the sound drivers in Windows are up to date.

I've posted this question in superuser : http://superuser.com/questions/943478/sound-problems-in-ubuntu-windows


In the official ubuntu launchpad forums: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/alsa-driver/+question/269861

So far, I haven't been able to find a solution.

Can someone help me out?
