You may also want to try installing the linux-backports-modules package as it has an updated version of ALSA for Gutsy.

Also, the Hardy Heron Alpha series was recently released which contains an updated version of the kernel. You can download and try the new Hardy Heron Alpha release from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/hardy/ . You should be able to then test the new kernel via the LiveCD. If you can, please verify if this bug still exists or not and report back your results. General information regarding the release can also be found here: http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/ . Thanks.

Hi there,

I just tested the Hardy Heron Alpha, the sound is fine on my
Toshiba Satellite Model A100 - 207

Thanks for all the hard work that all of you have done on this.
