Audio in Ubuntu 9.10 acting weird


Just like the title, my Ubuntu 9.10 audio acts really weird to me. Sometimes I can't record anything using the sound recorder and the immediate muting of the loud speaker when i plugged in my headphone doesn't work, but then all of sudden it worked and then the problem might occur again. It's like, in some period the audio works perfectly well as if there's not bug, and then it goes wrong.

What I noticed is that the problem reoccur when I shutdown/restart my PC and after few minutes/hours/days it works fine again. Does anyone know why this happens and help me solve this problem?

Btw, output for "lspci -v"

I have had the same problem! Very different sound/motherboard card though. But still, you're not the only one. For me it's the games and the sound recorder. Youtube videos and movies come out perfectly. Games, or sound recorder, it makes an AWFUL sound.

There's no problem with my sound accept the hissing sound when I'm trying to record something using the sound recorder. It's just sometimes the automute, record (audio/video) didn't work.
