i have an alienware 15 bought in 2014. when i plug in the headphones into the jack its indicating that its been registered but i just dont get any sound. i think ive tried everything in the system configuration from raising the volume to testing the speakers to changing jacks... still i cant find anything beside saying that the kernel might not be supported.

id be very thankful if anyone could help me out here or maybe even just point me in the right direction.

this has been quite a pain in the... i also had the same issue with ubuntu distro.

You may want to try a Live ISO from Fedora 20: http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/arch... . If you continue facing the issue, you could be looking at a hardware problem.
