no sound at all...

Hello out there! How are you doing?!
My experience with computer began when I was already a seasoned
man and, you know, if you wanted to buy a laptop a few years ago,
you had to accept windows as OS... So I had to.
Nevertheless, I was, at that time, aware about an existing bundle
of softwares bearing the name of 'linux' and because my experience
with windows were more or less a disaster, I downloaded my first
OS containing this wonderful technology named linux & C. (if I am
allowed to say), i.e., Ubuntu 7.10. I had already, at that time,
problems with my sound device and having the DVD's working properly.
To be honest I don't remember what I did because my research and
application was on the fly but, I am quite sure, I got someone's else
A few days ago I installed Ubuntu 8.04.2 LTS into a new machine which
had formerly installed another windows OS and the problem came out
again with this indication: error... NAV packet... 'It's a sound's
problem', suggested someone in a forum and, because this problem
does exist with my computer, I think this is the issue that needs to
be handled. I am looking for a simple and effective briefing in order
to getting the issue solved out and... I mean 'simple', because I can
'get lost in a glass of water'
Thanks in advance for your support.
