Sound not working

Bug #204966 reported by slimdog360 on 2008-03-22

This bug report was converted into a question: question #27669: Sound not working.

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Upgraded to the 8.04 beta from 7.10 and the sound stopped working.
I'm using the onboard sound with my Gigabyte M61P-S3 motherboard, which according to the manual says its using the Realtek ALC883 CODEC chip.

When I click on the volume control icon it comes up with a window which says

"The volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured.
You can remove the volume control from the panel by right-clicking the speaker icon on the panel and selecting "Remove From Panel" from the menu."

Device manager seems to recognise the onboard sound and I have all the gstreamer plugins, so I'm at a loss.
