I have a hp dv 8000 laptop that I just upgraded to hardy. My sound worked perfect with feisty and gutsy, but now the card is not detected. I have reinstalled alsa and searched these forums for hours. The card is an hda-intel ICH 7family. When I try to insert the module into the kernel by typing sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel I get errors saying:
WARNING: Error inserting snd_hda_codec (/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/updates/snd-hda-codec.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
FATAL: Error inserting snd_hda_intel (/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/updates/snd-hda-intel.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
When I click on the volume icon on the taskbar I get the following message:
The volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured.
You can remove the volume control from the panel by right-clicking the speaker icon on the panel and selecting "Remove From Panel" from the menu.
I am completely lost at this point. Can anyone help?
