I just received my HP Envy 15 (June 2012 model) and I cannot get my audio system to fully function.

This laptop has 6 speakers.

1.) 2 speakers on the front of the laptop (Stereo). 2.) 2 speakers above the keyboard, just before the LCD hinges. 3.) 2 Subwoofer speakers underneath the battery cover facing downward.

Only the 2 speakers in the front are working.

This is a "Beats" audio system. There have been many beats audio laptops before this one, so maybe if someone has experience with those, it might translate to this device.

    Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – fossfreedom Jul 23 '12 at 19:44
  • Also, this seems to be a link to information on how to solve a similar problem in Windows, using the Microsoft Sound Troubleshooter. It seems unlikely to apply here. – Eliah Kagan Jul 24 '12 at 5:09
  • This guide is for Windows... I don't have Windows on this machine. This is askubuntu. – Dean Howell Aug 18 '12 at 16:59
