Hi, i.m also very new to ubuntu and need some help. I had sound when i first installed ubuntu. Sound from pings and such from the computer and from internet. Somewhere in between upgrading Ubuntu and installing flash player( i did them back to back before checking) I've lost all sound from Ubuntu! No flash sound, no pings are nothing. C.d.'s wont even play!
I've tried switching the options in the sound folder from Auto-Detect to ALSA, to the OSS options and i get nothing.I have it on an Dell XPS 410. Thanx in advance.
