Problems with Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM sound


Hey guys,

I just installed ubuntu the other night on a fairly old intel box (Intel 845grg motherboard) and found out that much to my dissapointment, the sound didnt work at all.

I've run modprobe | grep snd and nothing comes up (if that does anything for anyone here).

I've also updated my distro to no avail.

lspci is as follows:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE/PE DRAM Controller/Host-Hub Interface (rev 01)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)
00:1d.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) USB UHCI Controller #1 (rev 01)
00:1d.1 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) USB UHCI Controller #2 (rev 01)
00:1d.2 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) USB UHCI Controller #3 (rev 01)
00:1d.7 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-M) USB2 EHCI Controller (rev 01)
00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 PCI Bridge (rev 81)
00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL (ICH4/ICH4-L) LPC Interface Bridge (rev 01)
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801DB (ICH4) IDE Controller (rev 01)
00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) SMBus Controller (rev 01)
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 01)
01:01.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 rev B 802.11g
01:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller (rev 81)


Any ideas? If I need to post more stuff then please tell me

Thanks.

Make sure the sound is not disabled in bios. The AC97 audio controller is pretty common and I would think your version of ubuntu has the driver.

Sound is enabled in the bios. I'd think that if it wasnt enabled then it wouldn't show up in lspci anyhow.

Its gotta be something deeper. I'm going to see if it works in another OS and report back.

If you have a later model live cd give it a try. I presume you have made sure the speakers are working, sometimes the sound volume needs to be turned up a lot higher depending on your distro.
