    HDMI video and sound are working flawlessly still. Played a little WoW on my TV.

    Re: HowTo: Sony VPCCW21FX

    Thanks for all the tips so far. Still having trouble with audio in 10.10. Audio was fine in 10.04 as long as i reloaded alsa after each auto upgrade. After running 10.10 update i had audio but no mic. After manual alsa update i have nothing. I've tried everything here and on the other boards.
    Here is what i'm getting

    If it was me, I would simply reinstall straight to 10.10. I never like to do upgrades because of how easily they break things. The only audio trouble I had with this laptop, was HDMI didn't work until a few days ago.

    Re: HowTo: Sony VPCCW21FX

    ok,
    i did reinstall 10.10
    still no audio hardware
    then i ran this and it worked

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r)
    i'm sure i did this before. must have fixed something on the reinstall.

    all works including hidef audio

    at this point i have newer kernel
    2.6.35-24-generic
    and nouveau drivers insist on loading even with install of 260
    placing nomodeset in grub config prevents this.

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub
    
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
    
    sudo update-grub
    Correct nvidia drivers load.
    tested hardware acceleration and its all working great

    (of course still no wifi

    Re: HowTo: Sony VPCCW21FX

    I think i have wifi working with the stock board in 10.10

    After messing with ndis and blacklisting stock driver wlan0 would no longer show up. To fix this and anything else I might have messed up experimenting I recompiled kernel
    2.6.35
    modprobed ath9k. wireless was up but still terrible.


    then installed latest compat-wireless from 1/24
    http://wireless.kernel.org/download/...-wireless-2.6/

    I am currently not seeing any packet loss and hulu works at 480p.
    Could this really be fixed? Can I actually do my work at the bar now?

    --- google.com ping statistics ---
    365 packets transmitted, 365 received, 0% packet loss, time 364445ms
    rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 25.534/28.556/79.112/4.318 ms

    Re: HowTo: Sony VPCCW21FX

    After 3 ubuntu versions (from Lucid to Natty) and 1 year of fighting with my wireless card (yes, I don't give up) I finally got my wifi working as it should. All I did is followed these steps:

    Create a new file /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf:

    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf

    Add the following line to it:
    options ath9k nohwcrypt=1

    Save and reboot. Your wireless should perform significantly better now.
