hello I'm running a dell inspiron 1720 and I upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10 with a fresh install from disk. My problem is after the upgrade my sound stoped working. When Ever audio plays th speakers just crackle. I am dual booting with windows vista and sound works fine on it so I don't think the speakers are broken. Any help would be much appreciated.

try gnome-volume-control in terminal and see if they are all turned up.
