I recently installed ubuntu 10.04 on a gateway M520S with a ICH4 southbridge AC97 audio card integrated into the motherboard. The default driver that is being used at the moment is "snd-intel8x0". I have no sound. I never did. I'm new to linux systems so I am having a hard time finding anything that can help. I found some trouble shooting guides and everything passed, but I still have no sound.
I had a similar problem with my wi-fi card, but for that I ended up re-installing the default driver and now that works, but when I tried to re-install the "snd-intel8x0" driver the terminal said it couldn't find the package. The command I used was "sudo apt-get install". (This worked for my wi-fi driver.) I don't know what else to do, please help.
