Default After restoring ubuntu sound isn't working... - 06-15-2009, 03:30 PM

Hello everybody,

my Dell Mini is almost 3 weeks old and after the first system update the hard drive was 100% ocuopied. So I dicided to restore the system. After severel intents I achieved it but the sound does not work.

besides the system does not recognize neither the external hard drive nor the usb pendrive.

Anybody can tell me how to fix these problems?

I'm not sure what version of Ubuntu you are using or if you are using Dell's customized version or vanilla Ubuntu straight from Canonical, but you may want to try this:
Ubuntu on the Dell Mini 9: Installing Ubuntu 8.10 on the Dell Inspiron Mini 9
There is a fix for sound issues and a potential fix for USB mounting issues near the bottom of the guide. I've seen it work for versions other than 8.10.
