Hello,

I recently installed Ubuntu 8.04 on a Dell precision 650, everything works fine except the sound. I tried many commands and many forums but no results. Audigy2 available

05:0e.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy (rev 04)
Subsystem: Creative Labs Unknown device 1003
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 23
I/O ports at ccc0 [size=64]
Capabilities: <access denied http://ubuntuforums.org/images/smilies/confused.gif

you have to make some minor changes in the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.

Best search this forum for threads containing this file name and something like 'snd_hda_intel', it is full of people with the same problem

theres a pretty good comprehensive sound troubleshooting guide that will probably help you out... my direct link is currently broken, however heres a link to the forum post that has, basically all the same info:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=205449&highlight=sound+troubleshooting+guide

I will say though, before you read this through, check and see if the sound works when you boot up with a liveCD. if it doesn't, then theres a good chance your sound card isn't currently supported (i had this problem with my laptop)

hope this helps!

Thanks for your help guys but i had already tried these methods with no success, it seems as mentioned by dew that my sound card is not supported. Again i would like to thank you for your time.
