It would help to know what computer and hardware you are using. Especially what soundcard you have!

Blosskamang,

Welcome to LQ, I hope you enjoy it here.

If you want to ask an Ubuntu question, start a thread in the Ubuntu sub-forum.

BTW, please don't use unnecessary color -- like all red -- it annoys many members, & even makes your post less readable for some of our members w/ certain vision problems.

How does a legacy sound card affect the color of your post? BTW, the last one is green.

Maybe he means to say a legacy graphic card? And Rick, thanks for closing that one thread. Some of these guys need to learn not to double post threads.....

I'll sure get the hang of things here. I actually have a legacy graphic card. I searched the web using google, and haven't gotten one to download.

open a terminal and type
Code:
alsamixer
adjust the volumes, and try again.

Kind regards

I'll assume he means a GPU/video driver.

@Blosskamang

What kind of graphics card do you have? Most drivers for common cards (e.g. NVIDIA, AMD/ATI, Intel IGP) are available from your distribution's package repositories. You can install them via the package manager (in your case Synaptic, or apt-get if you're comfortable w/ the command line), so there's no need to Google around and download the driver(s) from the video card vendor's website, although this is still a valid option (it just means keeping the driver up-to-date will be more difficult).
