No audio output from Gigabyte 880GM-D2H motherboard

I am assuming, I don't have any audio drivers. I haveany idea how to procede. The Cpu is AMD. Everything seems to work perfectly except I don't have audio output.

TIA, w00dee

you should start by checking the sound levels on the sound icon. i have been using linux for years but on one install found not that the main was muted but one of the lower ones was muted. the sound installs by default. there are also sound checks under your applications that check to see how things are working. you should be able to troubleshoot it with that. also, i am assuming the speakers are plugged into the pc...

this tells us that your kernel module "snd_hda_intel" and related modules should be providing your audio drivers so post the results of this from a terminal pls

top line to confirm your kernel has sound modules loaded
next line to confirm your codec is ---maybe Realtek ALC887
lsmod | grep snd
 cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 | grep Codec
next as baldur_1 suggests, assuming kernel modules and codec are present, unmute your sound outputs and raise volumes
in a terminal run
press M to mute or unmute a sound output
press -> or <- arrows to get to each setting
press page up/down to raise or lower volumes fast
press up/down arrows to change volumes slowly

assumes an usb kb with arrow keys.

If unsure, take a snapshot of your alsamixer output and upload to to a file sharing site eg and post a link to it pls

2) with a low post count, I suggest you edit your profile to show your distro
or reply and tell us pls
