No SOUND with Linux Mint 10 LXDE on an Emachines 250 netbook

Post by awweeks »

I installed mint 10 lxde besides windows 7 from the version downloaded via torrent. I loaded it to my usb drive. When i tried to access sound settings they were greyed out. I tried going into everything that had to do with sound and nothing worked. Can someone tell me how i can get the sound back? And also can i get someone to tell me what graphical interface can i use like when you access start on windows to load on the mint and how it is done. Please tell me on the sound if i need to download a driver how i get it and how is it installed as i am a very novice to linux anything. Thankyou and may God bless!

You may try to complete shut down(DON'T JUST REBOOT) the computer and then boot Linux Mint.

Reason: Reboot from Windows is NOT mean shut down the computer what may cause the sound driver will not be loaded correctly.

I have the option when i first turn on the netbook for which mint 10 recovery or full to start as well as windows 7. I choose full mint 10 by itself and there is no sound. Is this what you suggested? Also is there a way for me to download the sound part without downloading the full version again and if there is a driver issue i am missing please let me know how to install. Also what mint graphics option looks like when you press start on windows 7 and how do i download that part. Please help as i like this distro of linux. May God bless thankyou!
