I have a 1420n, originally 7.04.
Yesterday I updated w Update Mgr to 7.10 and then 8.04.
Didn't have any sound or wireless after updates.
I've been doing a lot of searching since, have not seen this solution posted elsewhere:

In System>Admin>Startup Mgr [after loading Startup Manager in Applications], I reverted to the kernel 2.6.22-15-generic, from 2.6.24-19-generic.
I now have sound and wireless.

Perhaps a lot of the trouble folks have been posting recently is simply due to the 2.6.24-19-generic kernel.

I hope this is clear and is a help, I'm not very linux wise.
