View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sound Quit

May 20th, 2008, 07:33 PM
I went through the Comprehensive Sound Problems Solution Guide and was unable to get my sound to work again. My sound was working fine until I uninstalled all ndiswrapper packages trying to fix a wifi card issue.

It is a Dell Inspiron 8200 with the following sound card according to lspci:

00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
Subsystem: Cirrus Logic Crystal WMD Audio Codec
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11
I/O ports at d800 [size=256]
I/O ports at dc80 [size=64]

I have tried both fixes in the Guide mentioned above. I am very new to Linux and even newer to Ubuntu (Hardy). I wasn't quite sure which driver to install using the alsa-source method so I tried installing the only two Intel drivers listed. Maybe the wrong driver?

I don't know. Please help. Thanks a bunch.

I would make a fresh install of Hardy Heron.

A second restart to backup my data to do just that and suddenly the sound works. Why it took a second restart I do not know. And I got my wifi to work too.
