Postby ayanph on Tue Jan 01, 2008 5:03 pm

Welcome to Mint ayanph
You have done the right thing and posted details of your laptop - especially laptops are hopeless to find out anything about on the net as what seems to be one laptop very often are two entirely different computers.
But - there is nothing about your sound
Run lspci in a terminal and post the part that has to do with sound.
I think this is a mixed hard/software problem

Thanks Husse for the reply. I was busy trying to make my 3D graphics working in Mint and got it thanks to the info I get from this forum. I even posted what I did to resolve it having an ATI Radeon 200M video card. Hehehe! I will definitely post the information as soon as I get home and will wait for any info / suggestion from the group. Cheers! I love Linux Mint!

Ouch - it's ATI sound, no experience with that :(
And sadly I did not find anything useful, but the search will continue given that I have the time needed
