View Full Version : [ubuntu] No Sound: Via8237 on a Biostar p4m800 m7-Pro

August 25th, 2009, 02:27 PM
I am completely new to Ubuntu and have downloaded the latest version with all the latest updates. I have cannibalized some old computers that I had laying around and everything is working but the sound card!

Please help, I have searched forums and am somewhat blind.

Can anyone help?

I am running a Via8237 on-board sound card.

good luck. i am in the same boat. i had been working with this thread:


but i'm almost about to give up and wait til someone smart programs a fix for us. otherwise i may just buy a sound card.
