Foreword - I am a total noob.
I have searched on the forums and noticed that there are a few articles that mention that the cause of some sound issues like the one i am experiencing can be due to an outdated version of ALSA. Tried to read through the instructions on how to update the software, but i'm more puzzled than ever?

Here's what I used two weeks ago. It takes some time for the script to complete, but it works. Don't be alarmed by your terminal cursor turning around like nothing will ever happen.

that is what i was reading, but doesn't make any sense. to give you an example it says
Short Alsa-Upgrade script install instructions:
1. download the script and save it somewhere
2. cd <your-download-dir>
3. tar xvf AlsaUpgrade-1.0.21-3.tar
4. sudo ./AlsaUpgrade-1.0.21-4.sh -di
5. sudo shutdown -r 0

where is the script?

Hi there, welcome to the forums! Here is some noob advice: ALSA is updated (along with everything else) through the normal Ubuntu update process.

You can use System->Administration->Update Manager or the terminal commands:


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Stick with these approved methods, and you will have a nice, stable Ubuntu system. :)

I would love to help you with the sound issue, but I have no idea about your hardware. The terminal command:


lspci

will tell you all about your hardware, including your audio card. (For example, mine is an Intel Corporation 82801G). You can use this information to search these forums for specific answers. Good luck!
