No sound on Realtek ALC280-Q-GR

Postby eitharus » Thu Oct 11, 2012 7:25 pm

Hi guys, I have recently installed Mint 13 and did have audio out of the Headphone jack but not the speakers. I installed the alsa-hda-dkms Driver to try and fix this and since that, the alsamixer has stopped being recognised in Term and my audio card is now unclaimed.

Anyone know of a driver for this card, or what I did wrong.
