I installed unbuntu 9.04 vanilla last night and noticed that after I had installed Nvidia version 180 drivers my sound stopped working. The sound was definitely working prior to driver installation.

Uninstalled the drivers and after a reboot sound returned. The same issue occurred when installing version 173 driver set.


Nvidia 8500 GT
Mothreboard Asus p5b deluxe
Onboard sound.

Performed a fuill update to the OS and the sound still will not work when Nvidia drivers applied.

Any thoughts?

Swapped the Nvidia card out.
