View Full Version : [ubuntu] no sound on dell m1530 just static

December 4th, 2008, 10:50 PM
I recently upgraded to 8.10 via the upgrade manager, and seem to be having a more good than bad experience, I hadn't used linux (in particular Ubuntu) since ubuntu 6.10 and was AMAZED to see how far it had come on 8.04 and now I feel as if I'm back in the old days when it took me days to get my install working the way I wanted

I finally got my nvidia 177.80 drivers working and only to find out I can only get static out of my sound card, it had worked earlier today to play music and game tracks, but now it's nothing but static, my alsamixer in the terminal also seems to be showing less channels, only showing the master and capture, when before I had 5 or six others to play with

anyone have any ideas what's up? I'm Stumped
