Hello everybody,
  Recently I have installed Fedora 10 on my Compaq CQ45 laptop. But
unfortunately there was no sound from the laptop speakers even though
the headphones worked perfectly. I did some google search but it
didn't helped. Later, on a discussion at #alsa(freenode.net), one of
the IRC member(nickname: copper) gave some clue and finally found that
I have to upgrade the alsa driver and pass the model id(dell-m4-1) as
a parameter in modprobe.conf. Here are the results generated by
alsa-info.sh before and after upgrading to the latest alsa(1.0.18a).


The option I have passed to /etc/modprobe.conf/alsa-base is :
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-1

After reboot, I was able to hear sound from laptop speakers.
