Advent 9112 headphones

My laptop is an Advent 9112

With Ubuntu, the soundcard (Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03) - has issues.

In particular, pluging in the headphones doesn't mute the main speakers.

The solution add the following lines at the bottom of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base

#I have modified this file on TODAY's Date to get headphones working options snd-hda-intel model=mitac
then restart alsa.
sudo /etc/init.d/alsa restart

Thanks a lot! My previous solution was to add duct tape over the speakers.. This is much better xD

btw the cooling fan on my 9112 is quite annoying..its noisy and it feels like its running too often.. maybe this has nothing to do with linux..any thoughts?
