  3. [ubuntu] Re: Help a noob: Sound suddenly broken 10.04 with USB audio

    No, as I say, the sound has been working fine with the USB audio adapter.

    It would be surprising if I had to re-install Ubuntu simply to fix this problem, especially if the problem could arise...

    Thanks for the suggestion, BbUiDgZ. I'd explored various ideas, and I think I'd found those bug reports that referred to error messages with ACPI conflicts at start-up. None had worked though.

  18. [SOLVED] Re: Grub: edited grub.cfg, broke it, and can't recover

    I need to close this off somehow, I guess.

    Nope. That broke grub again. :(
