Without knowing what your problems are it is impossible to say what will and what will not help you. However, I suggest you enable the medibuntu (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu) repositories and get all the codecs etc etc that may be needed for a start. Then you can start looking elsewhere if you still have difficulties, with possible changes to your default sound system settings and other system-wide changes that may be needed.

Also it might help going to Administration>Software Sources and opening all your repositories. Then do:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
