View Full Version : [ubuntu] No sound (completely new to linux)

September 18th, 2008, 03:58 AM
As I stated I am completely new to linux, I know so little it about it but I am willing to learn, and I am slowly learning.

I have an alienware area51 m15x laptop dual booting with vista:(.

I have sound in windows vista, yet none in Ubuntu. I have searched the web for help and read some posts but nothing has helped yet.

I have checked alsamixer as many people have suggested in other threads and all is unmuted and maxed. My volume is maxed and unmuted.

I read https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingSoundProblems and nothing helped, and my head is pounding with all the information that I have bombarded myself with in so little of a time frame.

I have txt files attacted with output from "uname -a" and "lspci -v" named as the command.

From "dpkg -s linux-ubuntu-modules-$(uname -r)"

You likely do not want to install this package directly. Instead, install
the linux-generic meta-package, which will ensure that upgrades work
correctly, and that supporting packages are also installed.
