    Re: upgraded to 9.10 from 9.04 - sound dummy output?

    I'm getting the same problem (using an old Soundblaster Audigy), and I've tried doing the terminal command suggested, but I get a message saying:

    alsactl: load_state:1608: No soundcards found...

    Anyone got any ideas? My sound was fine in 9.04.

    on my hp nx7400 this issue was caused by the proprietary modem driver:

    workaroud if you don´t need the modem:
    German: System/Systemverwaltung/Hardware Treiber
    English, I suppose: System/Administration/Drivers

    -> then deactivate the modem.

    Thank you,

    I formated and installed just now Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala and then installed nVIDIA's and SmartLink modem proprietary software. After that I noticed that I had no sound, after having deactivated the proprietary modem driver and the problem was solved.

    Best regards.

    I got sound! I was booting to the Jaunty kernel, for some reason, and after uninstalling linux-headers-2.6.28-11 and installing linux-headers-2.6.31-14 my sound works, and so does my bluetooth stereo!

    My wireless DID quit tho

    But I found a thread to fix that too.....

    Re: upgraded to 9.10 from 9.04 - sound dummy output?

    Hi, I've got the same problem, but have no proprietary modem drivers installed, hence nothing to disable in Hardware Drivers!

    lspci gives:

    Code:
    00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
    but

    aplay -l gives:

    Code:
    aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...
    Hmm....

    What do ya think? (Complete newb at a dead end!)

    Thanks in advance guys.
