Provide us an lspci output in this thread. We need to know what kind of sound card you have.

Hi, Open a terminal (from Applications>Acessories) and type aplay -l
That hopefully will tell you what card you have.
Follow this guide (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting) for getting it working, or report back with more info.

Did you recently install Ubuntu on your laptop? What version are you running?

I installed ubuntu yesterday, the newest version, hardy heron...


Heres what I got:

LSPCI OUTPUT:

johanna@johanna-laptop:~$ lspci output
Usage: lspci [<switches>]

-v Be verbose
-n Show numeric ID's
-nn Show both textual and numeric ID's (names & numbers)
-b Bus-centric view (PCI addresses and IRQ's instead of those seen by the CPU)
-x Show hex-dump of the standard portion of config space
-xxx Show hex-dump of the whole config space (dangerous; root only)
-xxxx Show hex-dump of the 4096-byte extended config space (root only)
-s [[[[<domain>]:]<bus>]:][<slot>][.[<func>]] Show only devices in selected slots
-d [<vendor>]:[<device>] Show only selected devices
-t Show bus tree
-m Produce machine-readable output
-i <file> Use specified ID database instead of /usr/share/misc/pci.ids.gz
-D Always show domain numbers
-M Enable `bus mapping' mode (dangerous; root only)
-P <dir> Use specified directory instead of /proc/bus/pci
-H <mode> Use direct hardware access (<mode> = 1 or 2)
-F <file> Read configuration data from given file
-G Enable PCI access debugging
johanna@johanna-laptop:~$

APLAY -L:

johanna@johanna-laptop:~$ aplay -l

Use the guide I provided the link for in my previous post. The fact that aplay -l found a card is good. You should be able to follow the guide to get sound working.

I'm finding it really hard to understand the guide, I don't know what my actually card is, intel or analog, and when I click on the analog link it doesn't work :(

Also I don't have any internet working at the moment, so I don't know how I'd install it if I did find it ...

Thanks

Johanna
