Hello,
i guess this is a common problem for newcomers.

I my windows crashed on my new notebook (Asus K50lJ). I was pretty pissed off, so I installed Debian, but sound & wireless didn't worked. So I tried linux mint. now my i see my wireless, but the sound is still missing.
since i read some other poses with this problem, i know, nothing is muted and everything is on 100 in the alsamixer.

and btw the big return button doesn't work (probably just some little box i have to check, but i don't know where :(( )

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hope this will help with the 9.04 sound problem.
Running a new install of Linux Mint Gloria.
I got sound working on an Intel Corporation 82801I chip on hp dv3-2157cl with these 3 steps

1. Install as usual, and do all the updates to kernel 2.6.28.14

2. Install Alsa 1.0.20 from this forum:
http://monespaceperso.org/blog-en/2009/05/09/upgrade-alsa-1020-on-ubuntu-jaunty-904/

Reboot

3. Open a terminal and edit alsa-base.conf as follows:
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

When the file is open add the following lines to the end of the file after "options snd-pcsp index=-2"


alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-1 enable_msi=1

Save/close and reboot

The volume is a little low, but sound works. I pegged out all the sliders.

If anyone has a suggestion for increasing the volume, please post.

Turns out my volume is fine. I was using a low volume test file!
