Ok, wifi works now, got online, downloaded skype, while it downloads, pop over to YouTube, there is no sound! I've looked around, but the only fix I can find is an old alsa fix for ubento which claims to be more dangerous than helpful http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1681577" class="bbcode_url">http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1681577. Will this help or do I need to do something else?

Thank you.

It's not nessesary, becouse you have Alsa 1.0.25 installed already (if you keep the system up to date).

Don't you have sound in Skype only or else?

If so what is it?

Means - Youtube - what is your web browser?

I have no sound whatsoever, I'm using the default browser in unity, not sure what it's called.

Just do a test: open from menu-> multimedia (or audio and video)-> gnome alsamixer and check is something muted in there.

If so unmark muted boxes and try to play music, video, etc.

I have already, all is unmuted, just tried plugging in headphones and wierd

Y they work, it's just the built in speakers. I know they work, they were fine with vista(excuse my French).

Show me results of the commands from a terminal emulator:

Code:

lspci | grep -i audio
aplay -l
groups
ps ax | grep pulse


and as root/admin:

Code:

lsmod | grep snd

Can you open Gnome-Alsamixer from the menu, go to tab Edit -> Program Preferences and tell me how many cards shows 'Sound Card Names and Visibility' option?

just Analog Devices AD1984A.

OK, just one more think.

To make sure does your card use right codec, show me:

Code:

cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec


and show me your /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf' file.

Add new two lines to 'alsa-base.conf', to the end of the file:

Code:

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=mobile


Save it, restart system and try your device.

Anyway, check the links, some people had similar problem with the same sound card like you:
