I presume you mean there is sound in vista and no sound in ubuntu

please post the ouput of the following (run it in the terminal)

lspci | grep Multimedia

and then

sudo lshw -class multimedia

yes from your screenshot it shows that you are using the intel card "82801H"

which a quick google serach will tell you is "Intel 82801H HDA"
one of the last people I helped get sound had the same card...

OSS is much more mature than the alsa drivers for now, though due to the fact they are now closed source I believe they are removing them from future releases (you can still install it yourself though)

we really need a massive increase in stability and functionality with the oss alsa/pulse audio combo very soon.

anyway glad you got your system sorted
