    Sound probs on HP Pavilion dv7

    Hi,

    I have a new HP Pavilion dv7 on which I have installed Ubuntu 8.04. The sound is the problem. Its not working. What I have tried to do is to install new alsadrivers. But that did not help.

    What happens is that when I come to the login screen the Ubuntu Welcome sound is played like 10-15 times and with a diminuendo.

    What to do?
    Thanx

    PS. The name of the soundcard is (I THINK) HD audio controller. At least that what lspci said. I can post more from lspci if someone need to see. DS.

    I have this same issue, and nothing in this guide helped, the sound works however its all muffled and low quality, and my audio mixer only shows an input/output channel, nothing else.

    Ditto to the muffled sounds. This laptop has a subwoofer in addition to the normal speakers. It appears to be using just the subwoofer.

    I've tried changing some of the devices to use in the Sound Preferences, but it doesn't seem to help. I'm afraid to poke around with the configs too much since that usually leaves me with no sound and in need of a reinstall.
