I have problems with the sound on my Samsung Q40 notebook.
I tried to search dmesg and /var/log/messages, but I'm unsure which search pattern I should use
The problem is: I have no idea what's the name or manufacturer of the build in sound device.
I tried mplayer with all with "mplayer -ao help" given audio outprut drivers but to no avail.
And I tried with the GUI sound adjustment tool every available option and driver.
When I startup linuxmint, there is sometimes a high pitched sound, but that stops after a few seconds.
I still have the preinstalled XP on it but that don't give any more information about the sound device. [It's working well with XP, but I want to use only LinuxMint though]
By googling I found a review which states that Kubuntu Linux also works well on it...
Which is the best way for me to go?
And hints greatly appreciated.
