Post [solved] Only Digital output (S/PDIF) selectable?
Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon+MATE, -64.
There is no way to change from Digital Output to Analogue Output so I can use my headphones.
How comes?

I believe this feature is mechanical.
The 4th pin in the audio jack serves as a digital output.
It requires a 4 pole 3.5mm to RCA cable.

Can you please elaborate on your issue with outputting audio on your headphones?

Well, I've been using my mobile headphones (4-pin) to get sound earlier.
Can not say exactly when this option disappear.
I have some older TimeShift to try.
Is there any settings i BIOS for this?
I have only found enable/disable HD-Audio.

More:
Started Live session with Linux Mint 19.
Still only S/PDIF.
So, maybe not been working since upgrade to 19?
Therefore: Started Live session with Linux Mint 18.3 (same as shipment).
Still only S/PDIF
=?
So.. maybe my sound/analogue output been missing since BIOS upgrade 5,th august?
Possible, I'm not using sound by listeng to music and so on.

Anyway.. I'm now using a BT headset so the main problem is gone but (now even more) curious about this :geek:

1. Is there a way to confirm this? BIOS by 14-May-2018 disables analogue output? (kinda..)

2. Is there a chance that BIOS by 26-Sep-2018 fix this?

There is no information about "sound" at http://www.fit-pc.com/wiki/index.php/Fi ... BIOS_Files

Please confirm which BIOS version you previously had that worked good.
Does right after installing the latest BIOS version this issue started to occur?

Please try to do the following steps:

1. Press [Del] during boot to enter BIOS setting
2. Press F3 (Optimized Defaults) In the BIOS setting
3. Keep the OS selection to Windows - Do not change.
4. Press F4 (Save & Exit).

Does the behavior change?

Ahh.. my, bad, mistake.. :oops:
At some point when "fooling around" in BIOS, to figure out more about shutdown in this thread viewtopic.php?f=171&t=6326
I changed from Windows to Linux.

So this works:

1. Press [Del] during boot to enter BIOS setting

4. Press F4 (Save & Exit).


Big thanks!
