Lately, my sound has stopped working consistently. I have a Lenovo X61 Tablet running Ubuntu 8.04 Sound worked out of the box, but recently, I started using the docking station at work. I am pretty sure that sound worked fine for a while after this too. But now, it seems that when I am out of the dock, sound doesn't work at all. When docked, it works fine.
My laptop seems to use the AD1984 sound chip. I have done some due diligence and tried sound-related solutions like adding
to the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base file and even the /etc/modprobe.conf file. Nothing seems to help.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any solutions? Thanks alot!
