Hi,

I have a sound problem in ubuntu.

Two things I have done to solve similar problems in both Mandriva and Ubuntu are:

1. As root, execute
Code:
alsactl restore
2. Execute
Code:
esd
(and you'll be told if esd is already running or not). I generally do both these things when the same problem arises, and maybe 75% of the time one or the other fixes the problem.
