I just got this new laptop, and decided I'd force myself into learning linux by switching harddrives and only running Linux on this. Now honestly I do plan on learning myself and reading the forums(which I have already tried with this sound issue) but its hard for me to work when i have no music!
I know nothing about linux and am only stating to learn terminal commands
But my sound card info:
The sound works when I start the laptop (the asus logo comes on and a little sound plays out of the speakers) But when Ubuntu starts theres no sound.
I tried aplay -l showed my card, I did lspcv(or whatever) and it recognized my sound card as well.
I downloaded realtek drivers fromt he website, ran install, terminal went for awhile and then it closed itself. I configured the alsa driver 1.018rc3 from the desktop folder and a similar thing happened. Upon restart there was still no sound.
Please help, so hard to use a computer without sound!
