View Full Version : [ubuntu] No Sound - Compaq Presario CQ40-300LA

August 21st, 2009, 02:32 AM
Hi all

I have a laptop Compaq Presario CQ40-300LA. I had just installed Ubunto 9.04 and I have no sound. With the original windows Vista the sound card described was Intel IDT High Definition (also says in HP site "Altec Lansing"). It has a webcam and a buit-in mic and speakers. The video described Mobile Intel 4500M.

My requirements are:

1. Sound configuration
2. Video Acelerated 3D (to view a video is very slow, specially at fulll screen)
3. Webcam configuration

Thanks in advance

I have a CQ40-305LA and have install 9.04 with a Kernel 2.6.28-14-generic and it recognize everything, but the sound card is not working properly and the web cam with web cheese also is not working properly (the image is very poor) and if I try to do any of the effects I can see the image until I restart gnome.
I was installing ubuntu 9.04 in a CQ40-505LA the same as mine but the difference is only on the size of the hard drive 250 GB instead of the 160 GB I have, the sound card didn't work at all but the web cam resolution much better than mine??????
If you get any more info please let me know, thanks
