I have lost my sound after I upgraded from gusty to hardy 8.04. Everything works well but I have no sound at all. I upgraded via adept, choosing the upgrade distribution option. This box only has on-board sound and everything worked fine in gusty. The kinfo center is reporting my multimedia audio controller as VIA Technologies VT82C686 AC97 Audio Controller, on IRQ7.

Is there any way to diagnose sound-card problems in hardy as I have not had problems with sound before, so do not know and can't not find anything revelevent to diagnosing sound card problems in hardy. ?

Wow my spell-checker for firefox started working. Cool. Anyone else had a sound problem and sorted it ?
