To install your video driver type: 'sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-i810' in a terminal, can you verify some things for your sound, Click System --> Prefs --> Sound and select everything to autodetect and test them. If that doesnt work try selecting your C-Media adapter instead of autodetect, and test again; once this works your sound should work throughout ubuntu, if none of these options work, then we will have to go further into troubleshooting.

Thanks David Portwood, that solved my question.

David Portwood: I wish my problem was that simple. I have a Gigabyte motherboard with a Realtek 888 sound chip-set.
In System preference sound Default Mixer Track -Device I can select Realtek ALC 888 (Oss Mixer)
and select Line in-volume-speaker-Mic (which I have in XP working) and I have selected All Beeps and
sound (enable software sound mixing (ESD)-play system sounds-etc. In Rhythmbox Music Player and
Movie player (G streamer) I have no sound. I found Realtek-Linux-audiopack-RHEL4U4-4.05f.tar.bz2 at www.Realtek.com and have ran it with the auto installer in Terminal but I am still getting no-where.
I am new to Linux but I have it dual booted with XP and Linux is the boot loader. Any help in Linux will
be appreciated. My e-mail is <email address hidden> and I hope the sound problem is just knowing
what to type and when to hit enter.
