I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 on my Qosmio g40 Laptop.
Everything works well, except there's no sound from the laptop's speakers (4 speakers + a subwoofer).
The headphones DO work.

The laptop has Realtek alc262 as one of the sound options.
On Windows Vista, the sound driver is: Realtek Audio Driver v.6-
On Windows 7, the sound is automatically detected.

I get this error in sound preferences when I try to switch "sound playback":
audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Could not open audio device for playback.

I've posted the same problem on the Mandriva Forums, without success:
http://forum.mandriva.com/viewtopic.php?p=671239#671239

A recap of some of the things I've tried:
-Disabling Pulseaudio
-Reinstalling ALSA
-Realtek's Linux Driver
-Different Sound Preference settings
-Creating a new user
-Logging in as root
-Adjusting Pulseaudio Preferences
-Alsaconf
-Alsamixer / unmuting
-AUMIX, KMIX, etc.
-and a bunch of other tutorial stuff I found online.


Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

/sbin/modprobe -r snd-hda-intel && modprobe snd-hda-intel model=auto

exit 0
