Thanks Thanks for the suggestion Nisshh, unfortunately no luck. but when i try to remove alsamixer i get this: 'Reading package lists...

First I am running Ubuntu 10.04, on a HP dv6-1210sa.

When i installed the sound was working, but the mic was not.

I have a relatively new Intel "Ultrabook", the HP Envy Spectre XT. Support for this was added to ALSA 1.0.25 based on this changelog:

title=Changes_v1.0.24_v1.0.25&action=edit However the ALSA driver version in Ubuntu 12.04 is 1.0.24. Yes, Ubuntu precise LTS is having the ALSA version of 1.0.24.

Can someone explain how to update the ALSA driver to 1.0.25? ------------ Driver version: 1.0.24 Library version: 1.0.25 Utilities version: 1.0.25 I think I need to get that "Driver version" up to 1.0.25 to get support for my hardware. You can look at the below link, where the upgrade script has been attached.

The alsa-base package says it's using a package version 1.0.25-dfsg-0ubuntu1. I have tried on the AMD's new SI products and it worked well.

Hi, very little need to tell you i'm a beginner here..

Anyway, having a little (read 'a lot of') trouble with the sound.

I think you should follow the Ubuntu official guide about sound issues, specifically in the step 1 for your Ubuntu version: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound Troubleshooting Procedure#Step 1 It helps you upgrading alsa packages in the safest way at the versions available at these PPA: https://launchpad.net/~team-iquik/ archive/alsa/ packages?
