sound card issue

Postby rosserconstruct on Wed May 02, 2007 3:04 pm

I recently just pulled a computer out of my closet that still works pretty well. After dusting off the hardware and making sure everything plugs in i installed windows and then linux mint. For some reason linux mint wont read my Philips PSC703 sound card and im not really sure why. Does anyone know why it wouldnt and if there is a way to fix it?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you google for your soundcard there are very few hits and nothing useful for linux
How old is that computer?
Brand? (Dell?)

I see I did not welcome you to Mint rosserconstruct - you are welcome.
Don't kick the box out of your house - you could build a firewall or a server out of it if you know how to tinker :)
