[SOLVED] Sound gone after installing NVIDIA Drivers
Ok, so I have Linux Mint 7 "Gloria", using kernel 2.6.28-11.
I got a new GeForce 8400GS and replaced my ATi pile of sh*t with it
no problem, Mint starts up fine as if nothing happened.

Install NVIDIA drivers following the instructions on these 2 threads:

Everything seems fine, so I reboot and all seems fine, except when
I try to play music or a video I get no sound at all. I'm fairly
certain that something in the first links instructions (the Ubuntu ones)
removed something it shouldn't have, but I have no idea what to look

Any help appreciated, thanks!

Ok, it seems my sound cable has broken during the installation or
something, my headset works fine on my computer. What timing again.

Check /proc/asound/cards and see which card is 0 the default card. A lot of video cards have audio on them now. Since HDMI transports audio as well as video. Various ways to re-index the modules to sequence in a specific order, or to have the applications choose a particular device. Which is probably what changed in the install with the introduction of a new device.
