    Angry No Sound & graphic driver problem in my hp 630 laptop

    This is the deal, I installed Ubuntu and I came across several problems and researched and made it work with the help of this forum, actually they were not problems, but minor tweaks to be made...anyways the thing is I tried installing the Additional Drivers from the Software Center and opened it but there was only two drivers for my Wireless Card and Bluetooth Card which actually uses the same driver, I didnt find any other driver like graphic or audio. I dont suppose my laptop doesnt suppose Ubuntu very well, cuz I believe Ubuntu supports anything with a bunch of tweaks.....and here I am...to get some tweaks

    OS > Ubuntu 12.10
    Problems : No Sound & Graphic driver i guess (aero effect doesnt work)

    Thankz

    Hi,

    Open terminal by pressing

    CTRL ALT t

    type in the command

    Code:
    lshw
    and

    Code:
    lsmod
    so we can see the list of your hardware
    btw how did u install your video driver? on my experience sometimes "Additional Drivers " fails. So you do it manually

    Popular video card driver was from ATI or Nvidia
    for ATI, check this out
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI

    for Nvidia the manual way
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NvidiaManual

    for Nvidia using the Binary
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bi...erHowto/Nvidia

    when Tweaking, Manual is your best friend. Good thing we have this forum to get help and also help other


    Cheers

    Just a silly addition: for your sound, be sure it's not muted in any of the mixers. For some reason when I first installed 12.04 my sound was muted and I had to go and "un-mute" it.

    Couple of comments ...

    If you are able to see a desktop, your graphics driver IS working; otherwise, you would have a blank black screen.

    Second, Aero is a Window graphics function, not Linux.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    HI,

    Had you checked your Sound setting on Preferences

    Application > Preferences > Sound

    You could to some test using that program or play around with the settings until you get them work.

    Change the Output Settings and see what works. Then try using some of your audion programs or by playing audio file.



    Cheers,

    I tried at the beginning itself, testing and going through all the system settings. Can hear nothing yet...
