You've already got the module for your sound card loaded (snd_hda_intel), so there's no need to do a modprobe. Check the volume settings to see that they're not muted. You can probably run alsamixer (in a terminal) to do this, but your desktop environment may have a tool for volume control as well.

I think you have to run modprobe as root or use sudo.

Bad news. I upgraded to ubuntu 8.04. everything went well. Got to youtube and some flash games, nothing. so i tried to install the .deb file from adobe. it said that it erased the old version and installed the new one, which were the same .0 version. Still not working. If i upgrade to 9.04 will it have adobe on there?

Still no luck with the soundcard problem. I looked for drivers for my MCP51 motherboard and they are all for windows.

The kernel already has the driver for your sound card, it's snd_hda_intel as mentioned above! Have you checked the volume settings?

I ran alsamixer. All the volumes were up except the capture volume. I turned t up but now i am still back at the flashplayer problem. For some reason i cant play any cd's now and it says "Location not found". im guessing the cd's are failing to mount or whatever they do. But they dont pop up on my desktop. they just go straight to an opening program. I was so close. now so far away. and people said upgrading would solve all my problems.

Try it again, this time spelling snd-hda-intel correctly.

I tried it bout ways with no luck. Everytime i put "sdn..." it just started a new command line. But i got a tar.gz file to go as far as this.

levi@Ni:~/Desktop/install_flash_player_10_linux$ ./flashplayer-installer

The OP already had the module loaded (see their lsmod output in one of their previous posts).

Lol. Again, i dont know how i did it but now adobe works and my sound card is working now too. I tried a bunch of stuff and nothing worked. Then i shut my laptop and woke up the next morning with it working. Didnt log out or shut down. so i dont know what happened but it worked. Now i face a new challenge. I want to get the compiz package working. I am using Xfce for my desktop and window manager, but i dont like it. I would like to get the 3D cube workspace manager and seeing as how i have linux and windows i could have both running at the same time. may be slow but i could use it. Anyone know how to get the 3D cube working? I downloaed the compiz packages but have no idea how to remove Xfce and replace it with compiz.

You really should start new threads for separate problems.
