I have installed Ubuntu on a vaio notebook VGN-T27GP/S running windowsXP. I have installed it on a new partition of 10GB.The installation is fine & every program is running except sound. There is no sound at all.

When I work in Windows platform there is sound but in Ubuntu platform there is'nt. All configurations checked. Can anybody help? The driver in window's platform is soundmax integrated digital audio.

I don't know if this will help you, but this is what I have to do, when I reinstall Ubuntu at my HP dv7 1070eo:

1) Open the Terminal.
2) In the terminal: type sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
3) This will open that file In gedit:
Scroll to the bottom of the file and add the new line:
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1
4) Save the file and close gedit (you can now also stop the terminal).
5) Reboot the computer

Good luck
