Hi All,

I have a problem with the sound on my Toshiba Tecra T9100. I've just installed Ubuntu 8.04 and apparently it can't find the sound card, but the sound worked fine when running Windows ? My volume icon has a red warning sign over it, clicking the icon gives me an error window that says "No volume control Gstreamer plugins and/or devices found".

I followed the instructions on the Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide thread....

Step 1....

rachel@rachel-laptop:~$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:205: no soundcards found...


Step 2....

Am I right in saying that no sound card is listed and should there be something like this be listed....

00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)

I checked to see if it was disabled in the systems BIOS, but found no mention of a sound card?...So where has it gone and what do I do next, can I reinstall it from somewhere....HELP ?

I also have another identical laptop on which the sound works OK (it has problems of it's own...but that's another story !)

This is all still very new to me (I think the technical term is 'Thick' when it comes to computers) and I've been struggling to sort this out for a couple of days, but I can't seem to find a answer, so any help is much appreciated.

Cheer's
