Recently, I had a total crash on my hard drive, and I had to format it. I didnt have my XP boot cd, so my friend gave me his version of Ubuntu 8.04. Im a complete and total newbie at this, so Im at a bit of a loss. You see, I have it working on my machine, and it works well, except it have no sound. The computer Im using is a Dell 3000 with a ADI 198x Integrated Audio soundcard. I looked through a large stickied thread you have on these boards, and nothing Ive done has worked. I havent tried all the solutions offered, since Im very, very new at this and I dont want to mess anything up.

Does anyone know what my problem is? And how to fix it?

Thank you very much.
