Then lets try these:

I recently aquired a new laptop (HP G60-530US) and hadn't actually tried
the headphones jack. While looking for answers for your issue, I tried
the headphones & found that I have the same problem. My sound device is
different than yours (Intel G45) but the symptoms are the same - in
fact, using gnome-alsamixer I don't even find the headphones option. So,
I'm currently taking a look at these bugs:
Installing linux-backports-modules-alsa-karmic-generic didn't work &
seems to have actually made the situation worse... haven't tried
2. Add "options snd-hda-intel power_save=10 model=hp-dv5 enable_msi=1"
to the bottom of the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file. (always create
a backup first)

But... I do want this fixed on my system as well, so at least you have
company :-)
