cat /proc/asound/version

i get

so it may be that you need to upgrade alsa, this will install the latest alsa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ricotz/unstable

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

thanks to http://www.webupd8.org/2009/11/ubunt...1021-from.html
for the alsa instructions.

Sorry it wasn't working for you, as i said earlier i had been messing with the sound settings etc for a while before i got it working, thanks for the feedback, i'm considering doing another fresh install to figure out the exact steps i took. Let me know if the alsa upgrade makes any difference.
SWEET - it works fine after the ALSA upgrade!!!

here's my output - but I didn't even run pavucontrol after the upgrade.
Code:
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.21.

Thanks James!!
