Finding audio drivers for Sony Vaio computers


My Friends:
I'm Dave from Baltimore,Maryland and I just converted to Ubantu.
My computer is a Sony Vaio desktop and I would like to use the installed soundcard, but cannot find drivers for Ubantu.
Second how would I install the drivers?

Thanks in advance

Dave

I think it's "Ubuntu"....and you'll have to give us a few more details before we can help. What version of Ubuntu? What model "Vaio desktop"? What kind of sound card?

Ubuntu and most other distros come with a very good variety of sound card support already. If you can't identify the sound card from your PC manual, can you post the output of "lspci" and "lsusb"??
