Ubuntu Sound not working Dell Mini 9


After updating Ubuntu 10.4 even though all sound options are enabled no sound is playing through the built in speakers on my Dell Mini 9

To resolve this problem a file requires editing in the Terminal Window.

To do this follow these instructions :-

    1. Press ALT+CTRL+T to Open the Terminal Window


    1. Type –> sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf


    1. You may need to enter your password then click ok


    1. add this at the bottom of the file: “options snd-hda-intel model=dell”


    1. Click Save, then close the window


    1. Type –> exit (to close the Terminal Window)


  1. Now Restart your computer
