Hi, This is my first post. I usually hate posting my first thread for help, but I'd like to get my problem solved as quickly as possible.

The issue is after a regular update on my system to Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS my audio control is no longer working.

The computer I am running everything on is an HP DV4-2170US with an Intel i5 processor, I believe one of the first generations. My volume control is on a touch panel above my keyboard and hasn't had any issues until an update last night.

I have already gone through basic troubleshooting to try and resolve the problem, and did a little research. And i did report the bug using the command ubuntu-bug -s audio

When I got back on today there were a couple more updates, which I ran as well, and this did not correct the problem either.

I am unable to control my sound in any way. According to the computer it is turned off, but when I play music through pandora, or youtube, or even my music player, it sounds like it is as loud as it can get. When i click on the volume control at the top of my screen, I am unable to move it any direction. And When i open up the volume setting under system setting I can't change anything either.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I hope I have given enough information.

Thank you
