    I have the same model as you, and unfortunately the same problem as well. Followed everything markbuntu said in this post and his massive posting here:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=843012
    but I had no luck.

    This also happened to me when I upgraded from Hardy to Intrepid. Back then, I fixed it by following the instructions in this post:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=380578
    but the article it links to is no longer there I don't quite remember what it said, but all it did was get my speakers back. However, I do remember that after about a week or so, they fixed everything in an update.

    I'd be willing to just try a fresh install if anyone could confirm that it has worked on a gateway. If you have any luck though, please let me know

    Exceptionally clear guide, Mark. Many thanks. I'm afraid it doesn't work for me, however, having lost sound on upgrading to Jaunty from Intrepid. No sound in headphones or speakers.

    Any suggestions welcome. Is it likely, if there's no fix now, that an upgrade will take care of this later?

    Cheers, Paul

    Re: Jaunty 9.04 Sound Solutions

    Have 2 questions:

    1. Which is the preferred interface (OSS/ ALSA) for 5.1 and 6.1 output, including DTS?
    2. Which interface supports 96KHz rates with Audigy2?

    Thanks

    Markbuntu, THANK YOU!

    I was very happy to see how snappy Jaunty was to start compared to my 8.10 set-up and I heard the initial drums at the log-in screen but then magically my sound disappeared with no apparent reason for it!

    Your guide was incredibly helpful and now that I know about the padevchooser tool I think I'll be set for the future too.

    I wonder why the Ubuntu team doesn't make that chooser a bit more prominent or create a simplified version of it to choose the default sound card and "move channels" if the wrong sound card is being used.

    Apparently Ubuntu is primarily focused on single audio card users, but multiple cards is not uncommon these days (one on-board and one add-in card like SBLive).

    Thanks again! Rock on!

    Re: Jaunty 9.04 Sound Solutions

    Most of my sound in this Jaunty upgrade had already been working OK after some dedicated troubleshooting over the last several days. A couple hours ago, I followed the Part A instructions on psyke83's thread for PulseAudio fixes, and it fixed a mic issue I was having (the same one nwadams mentioned in post #5, I think). From the psyke83 HOWTO:

    4. Open System/Preferences/Sound. In the Devices section, ensure that all "Sound playback" options are set to Autodetect. Set the "Sound capture" item to "ALSA", or the appropriate hardware definition. Close the application when you're finished.
    Note: Choosing PulseAudio for sound capture may result in crashes, so you are advised to choose the "direct" ALSA device instead.
    markbuntu, this seems to contradict one of your instructions:

    System/Preferences/Sound, change everything to PulseAudio Sound Server except Default Mixer tracks which you should change to you hardware playback device like Playback: HDA ATI SB ALC888 Analog..... or something like that. Default Mixer tracks is where you set what your multimedia keys control.
    Can you reconcile the difference? Do they actually do the same thing maybe? Thanks for all the work you've put into this.

    UPDATE: After I followed this thread's instructions and rebooted, my mic issue came back. I've spent two hours since backtracking and troubleshooting to no avail.

    Re: Jaunty 9.04 Sound Solutions

    The only solution I have found, nothing above having helped to get my mic working in Skype or Sound Recorder was simple: remove Pulse Audio.
    I now have working sound, working mic, working Skype.
    A pox on Pulse Audio say I. It was rogue in 8.10, and is worse in 9.04.

    B Crowther, can you say what steps you took to remove PulseAudio? I haven't had the guts to try it because I've been made to understand it's even more deeply embedded in Jaunty than Intrepid. But if there were a somewhat safe way of going about it...

    Re: Jaunty 9.04 Sound Solutions

    gransonik and mrbubblesort, I have a similar model, the Gateway P-6831FX, and I too have been struggling with this "sound through headphone jack but not speakers" issue.

    There seems to have been a bug report about this filed at the start of this month with no apparent progress: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...io/+bug/358166

    So I'm guessing that we either have to wait for a real, official fix, or perhaps removing PulseAudio will do the trick, since it is the root of all the sound problems everybody is experiencing.
