no sound gatewat 3545gz laptop

Asked by max on 2008-12-04

i have just installed kubuntu 8.10 on my laptop (gateway 3545gz) everything runns well but i have no sound. i have tried some ideas i found in some forums to remove the alsa driver and reinstall it "fresh" but hasnt worked- the mixer i have tried to turn everything up but no soung- the media players i use seem to play but i hear nothing.- i dont have a problem with the hardware or settings because in windows it works well- i have also tried to build the alsa driver from source but i get errors and driver is not sucessfully installed. -
when i do $lspci -v this is what i get

This procedure might solve your issue:

If it is still not working, try turning up the volume on all channels in aumix and in alsamixer.
