• KabyLake audio problem

    Wanted to share a solution for an audio problem found on the new Razer Blade Stealth (Intel’s KabyLake CPU 2016) with Windows dual-boot.

    The Problem: no audio from speakers, cracking noises and bad audio quality on the headphones, especially when using the touchpad.

    Debugging: Installed every possible Linux distro (Arch, Ubuntu… everything) with all Kernels from 4.4 up to 4.8. Tried to modify Alsa settings and PulseAudio. I got a hint when it worked fine after the first installation and then stopped working after booting to Windows.

    The solution: If booting to Windows, just do a complete shut-down (no restart). This solves the issue: it’s a hack but it works.

    Also and not related: Antergos Gnome is the only Linux distro that works out-of-the-box with a retina display. Kudos to the maintainers for doing such an awesome job.

  • Hi @edoardo849 ,

    Thanks for sharing your “hack”, I’m sure it will be useful to others.

    And thanks again for your kind words.
