No sound, nvidia ck8s recognized


I'm using Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon, with fresh install and I lost all day today trying fixing the sound:

lspci | grep -i audio output:

00:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce3 250Gb AC'97 Audio Controller (rev a1)
aplay -l output:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: CK8S [NVidia CK8S], device 0: Intel ICH [NVidia CK8S]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: CK8S [NVidia CK8S], device 2: Intel ICH - IEC958 [NVidia CK8S - IEC958]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Everything seems normal, I checked and the sound is not muted, the sound card is detected, when I play mp3 files the player has no errors but still no sound at all!

I'd be grateful for any piece of advice you might have.

Thank you.


nvidia, sound, ubuntu
