    a couple of screen shots






    I tried reinstalling Ubuntu 10.10 three times but everytime audio works only the first time after install and stopped working when rebooted.

    All the information given above were unchanged when audio was working and when was not working, I am now getting frustrated because of this issue as is nothing has changed in the configuration from when it was working.

    The microphone works fine all the time ( I can tell this because that indicator in the input tab of sound preferences fluctuates when i use microphone)

    Please help me, I would really appreciate it.

    PS. My laptop has only one jack both for audio input and audio output.

    Thanks, waiting for reply

    The sound works fine when running from live cd, but stopped working after installing.

    Also both inbuilt as well as external microphone is working fine.

    Try updating your kernel:

    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    Reboot
