I recently switched from 11.10 to 12.04 and my headphone jacks have stopped working and my speakers now have extremely low volume no matter what they are set to. I have no clue what to do.

On my system, the sound works perfectly fine on the speakers in my laptop. When i plug in headphones, the sound comes out of the headphones AND speakers. It doesn't seem to recognize whether the headphones are plugged in or not. It actually doesn't seem to recognize that there are any headphone inputs at all.
Ubuntu is copping an attitude with me. I'm using the mainboard's native sound chips (I'll post all that good stuff at the end of the posting) and for some reason, Ubuntu's not too willing to enable the front microphone and headphone jacks. The rear outputs work wonderfully, but the front jacks are a no go.
I use them in Windows, so I know the connections are sound.
I can't seem to get my headphone jack on my xps to work properly. I have two jacks; a normal headphone jack and one labeled S/P DIF. The one with the label works, but i can't control the volume on it. I've been trying to add different options to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf, but nothing has worked yet.
I recently bought a Packard Bell Dot MA 11.6" notebook, which has been fantastic in every regard. I've used it with headphones a few times before, but have never noticed that when headphones are plugged in, audio randomly comes out of the speakers in sharp bursts.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 linux kernal 2.6.39-3-bb03 on my Asus U52F-BBG6 laptop and the sound works but only thru my internal speakers and I cant use my headphones that have a mic on them. well technically they are headsets. but can't get any sound out of them when i plug them into and cant record any sound from the mic even though they are pluged into the mic and headphone jacks.
