Default No sound in UNR 9.0.4 - 05-21-2009, 05:33 PM

Hello everyone,

Just got my dell vostro a90 yesterday. Installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.0.4 and I don't have any sound.... It was fine with Dell's 8.04

Please help! Thanks a lot in advance.

I don't have 'speaker' as on picture in the link you've provided...

Also, when I go to Preferences-Sound and choose ALSA from the list for sound playback, and click test - I get this:

audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 !
audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink:
Could not open audio device for playback.

Sorry I can't be of further assistance; I have the Mini 9, not the Vostro a90. Good luck!

Perhaps there is some minor difference in the hardware. Oh well...glad you got sound working.
