Sure.  As another poster pointed out though,
this is most likely a hardware issue, so I'm guessing
it is not a driver issue (though I'm hoping there's
some sort of sysctl/driver knob that would at least
allow me to manually enable/disable the speaker
or something...)

There are 3 plugs on this laptop:
First one has a earphone symbol, plus the word SPDIF.
Second one has a line-out symbol.
Third one has a line-in symbol.

I tried plugging in the earphone into each,
but none of it stopped the speaker.

Here is the dmesg output:
Thank you for your time,
and thank you for the great sound driver!
I was audio-less for a long time
until I found out about your snd_hda driver. :)
