I have installed ubuntu on my pc two days ago, today I was trying to solve the sound problems, but without success. In the beginning ubuntu didn't recognize any sound card. That's why I installed the driver, but I'm not sure if I've done it correctly. Well, if I type

cat /proc/asound/cards

into the terminal it now outputs

 0 [SB]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB

                  HDA ATI SB at 0xfe8f4000 irq 16

 1 [Generic]: HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic

             HD-Audio Generic at 0xfe9bc000 irq 50

Everything worked fine on Windows, what am I doing wrong?

I remember a few years ago having this issue with that exact sound card in Linux. Is there any chance you have a spare SoundBlaster PCI card you could plugin? Have you tried installing ALSA Mixer (command line sound tool)? – Richie086 May 19 '14 at 20:08
