    I tried everything on this page, as well as several others, and I get nothing. My soundcard is not recognized under any configuration gui’s, my usb interface is not recognized, just “dummy output” and “dummy output monitor”.

    lspci indicates

    00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801BA/BAM AC’97 Audio Controller (rev 04)

    However, PA Volume Control Configuration tab shows “no cards available for configuration.”

    I have cold booted several times. Everything worked fine under 8.04 and 8.10.

      you do not use the right kernel if you have also the problem with USB key.
      For instance make a clean install instead of upgrade…

    Did you try also [url=https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshootingProcedure]these instructions [/url]?

    …wish I could say it did. Ubuntu 9.10 (upgraded from 9.04).

    Looks like my main issue was/is the update-grub script. Apparently this is an ongoing issue with the Ubuntu on-line upgrade/update procedure. If you update your previous Ubuntu as opposed to re-installing a new Ubuntu, the menu.lst doesn’t get the message that you have a new kernel. Running ‘update-grub’ accomplishes nothing, even tho the output from the script indicates that it found your new kernel(s) and it updated your menu.lst. The only fix is to rm your menu.lst, THEN run update-grub, and tell it ‘Yes’ you want it to generate a new one. THEN you can boot your new kernel. I still had numerous issues running audio apps under the generic 9.10 kernel, and booting the 9.10 realtime kernel caused massive crashes at boot, so I ended up having to do a clean install of vanilla Karmic, but at least it recognized I had a soundcard. I’ll screw around with ubuntustudio audio apps at a later date, but frankly, my Windows box is going to have to TOTALLY piss me off before I go back to screwing with audio apps under Ubuntu again.

    tried all the advice on many pages, but not until I read that the older kernel won’t work (despite having downloading the newer one menu.lst wasn’t using it).

    I used synaptic to remove the older kernels and it updated grub and worked. so far so good.

    Actually the volume manager of Ubuntu is very basic, maybe that your issue could be more related to the settings of PulseAudio on your computer.

    Try to install the PulseAudio Device Chooser from the synaptic and play with those settings, you will see many many many information there that can resolve your issue and BTW try like to play a YouTube video or a music file while testing it because in that way you will see what could be happening with the audio stream on the computer

    Before I would have sound, but it would either be no sound, or 100% hearing damage. Now I have nothing. How do I fix this?

    Ok,

    So I’ve followed all the steps on this page & even disabled my onboard sound & switched to a Creative Labs Soundblaster card I had kicking around.

    The device is recognized & I can move the sliders & mute/unmute the sound but I have absolutely no sound coming through.

    Thanks, I got sound working by installing linux-backports-modules-alsa-lucid-generic, as instructed. :D

    When searching the internet I found lots of instructions to download alsa, configure and compile it, and install it manually. A cumbersome and error prone approach, which one should only have to resort to if no alternative is available. :confused: Was not aware that alsa is in backports and can be installed easily via package manager.
