:confused::(:confused:I have a HP Pavilion dv4-1225dx notebook. It came with Window Vista 64bit edition. My husband to be try putting kubuntu are it first and the computer wouldn't take it. So, he put ubuntu on it and forced it to change to kubuntu. I've never really used ubuntu before and I only know very little about computer. I don't have sound on my computer anymore and I saw that many people with this type of notebook had this problem and they showed how they fixed it, but I can't understand what they are talking about. I have no sound in my speakers or my headphone jacks and I'm really confused. Someone please help me!!!:confused::(:confused:

I whet to it and it's not clear to me. What does it mean to open "a shell"???

Open a shell means open a terminal. You can do that by going to Applications > Accessories > Terminal. A new window will pop up like the C:> prompt in windows. Thats the shell.

I'm now trying to find my soundcard in it, so that I can find out if there is an alsa driver. I'm sorry if I sound like an idiot, but I don't know much about computers and I'm just learning it now.
