    Angry NO sound at all !!!

    A friend of mine gave me his Laptop so that i could put linux on it because his windows progra, crapped out on him. He told me that his sound was not working with windows but i thought hopefully a fresh install of ubuntu 13.04 would help but NOPE 13.04 does not work at all so i dropped to lubuntu but still no sound at all i dont know what i can do to try and get it working. Any ideas?

    Information about the computer and sound card if applicable would be a good start to getting help. If the sound was dead on Windows the operating system may not make any difference if the problem is hardware related .

    Re: NO sound at all !!!

    I guess this would be a Toshiba Satellite L505D series laptop? You did not specify, but did include several Toshiba programs in your Included Programs list. That is the model series returned by googling "Toshiba 0883974248070". However, there are several variants with diferent sound setups, so you might post "Toshiba Satellite model ####".

    Try using the forums search feature (upper right hand) and search specifically for Toshiba model ###.

    If the built-in sound is not working, has it perhaps been turned OFF in the system BIOS?

    If the built-in sound is defunct, you might consider one of the many USB external sound cards available on www.ebay.com for under $10 dollars.

    I wish you success, my friend!
