Hi all,

I am a new user of ubuntu.. I tried playing a song file after installing all the necessary softwares.. But the song is playing without any sound.. I tried playing songs in windows xp to check if the sound card is damaged, but it played well in xp. I'm experiencing this only in ubuntu.. Please help..

Thanks in advance

Use the command
alsamixer in terminal. In the window that appears navigate with the cursor keys to move from slider to slider and to raise and lower the sliders, and the "M" key to mute and unmute sliders. Tab will move from Playback to Capture to All. Check that nothing is muted, or too low, and you may get your sound back.
