It looks like this is heading me in the right direction. However, when I enter the command-
sudo gedit /ect/modprobe.d/alsa.base
I open a window named-
*alsa.base (ect/modprobe.d) - gedit
this window is completely blank. But I tried entering the text anyways-
options snd-hda-intel model=vaio
And I get an error message reading-
Could not save the file [i]/ect/modprobe.d/alsa.base[i] unexpected error, file not found
So I close out that window and I have an error message on my terminal, basically saying the same thing...
I would think that file would be named the same in Mint as in Ubuntu, but maybe I am wrong..? Maybe I am missing something?
EDIT:: APPARENTLY THERE IS TEXT IN THAT WINDOW!! IT WAS HIDDEN AND ALL I HAD TO DO WAS SCROLL DOWN
THANKS FOR THE HELP! I HAVE HEADPHONES YAY!!
