Hi everyone. I just installed Hardy on my Dell Laptop, and I am having some audio problems. I can stream sound and video from the internet, but anything on my hard drive is having playback problems.

None of my music in Rhythmbox will play, and when I try Rhythmbox it freezes and I have to quit the application. Movies in VLC play fine, but there is no audio.

I have installed all codecs and plugins as mentioned in the sticky. I enabled crossfading in Rythmbox as well, to no avail. I got the ALSA drivers from a fresh kernel, as it says in the sticky, and this fixed the problem, UNTIL I restarted my computer. Now I am music-less again...please help!

This problem cant be very hard to solve, because I used to have gutsy on this laptop, and everything played fine.

Thanks any and all for your help!!

Try pressing alt f2 and typing in gstreamer-properties and running that.
Then try different devices under default output and see if that helps.
If that doesn't help try starting rhythmbox and vlc from terminal and trying to play something like before and seeing if it outputs any errors.
And did you do the sudo nano /etc/modules thing where it loads your modules on startup everytime.
