Help us help you, post all relevant information. Not having sound does not give us much to work from, we need at the very least your audio card name, the best would be output of:

Code: Select all


Type that in a terminal window (Alt + F2, type gnome-terminal). You could also just google yourself, try using "audio card ubuntu", replace audio card with the name lspci gives you.
