I have the opposite problem of some of the folks posting here about sound issues... mine is, I can't get my computer to mute, or adjust the volume. And it is REALLY loud.

I have tried a few things on my own (I'm not 100% familiar with Linux, but I've tried what I knew I could without breaking my poor, retarded computer)...

I have tried enabling the sound mixer, I have tried adjusting the volume controls and preferences, and I have even toggled the BIOS to disable audio (however, as you can probably imagine, this actually disabled ALL sounds on my computer, not just the ones I wanted gone). So, basically I either get no sound on my machine at all, or I get REALLY loud sounds on my computer.

I have found a temporary solution, which is to plug my headphones into the computer headphone jack, BUT, alas, it is not a complete fix. sad.gif

Anyone willing to help me defeat the evil volume beast?

If you purchased the computer, make and model number. If is isn't anything off the shelf then the motherboard make/model.
Also post the specific output of the command lspci that shows the information for your audio chipset.

Also there is no ubuntu version 2.22.3. If the build date is 2008 then you are running a very old version. Post the output of the command
cat /etc/lsb-release. Unfortunately, I do not suggest upgrading. It would be best to reinstall with the latest version.
