sudo apt-get install alsamixergui
installs AlsaMixer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alsamixer)GUI where you have the possibility to check your sound channels. Then raise the volume meters if they aren't already on top.

i think i have the alsamixer , & the sounds are at top but i still don't have any sound !
some of my friend said that the noise in the login zone is the sound of ubuntu but for me that sound repeats & hangs even after i logged in !
maybe ubuntu douse'nt recognize my sound card !! how should i check that !?

during the installation :
dpkg: status database area is locked by another process
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code

That would indicate that you have a install program active already. It could be synaptic or some other installer application. Close it first before you proceed.

Have you tried with mute/unmute the sound inside the sound settings application?

Hi PR_FM,

The following in a terminal:

aplay -l
should tell you what sound card you have.

Hi PR_FM,

The following in a terminal:

aplay -lshould tell you what sound card you have.
the result:

card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: STAC92xx Analog [STAC92xx Analog]
Subdevice : 0/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

now what should i do !?

Hi PR_FM,

I forgot to ask what version of Ubuntu you're using. Is it Jaunty (9.04)? I'm not a sound guru so I'm hoping someone with your card and version of Ubuntu can help you. There are a few things we could try that are "straightforward". But after that it can get complicated and you'd have to be pretty persistent to figure things out from the info. dump I would end up delivering. So I'd rather try to avoid that.
