[ubuntu] Audio issues with Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have just recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit on my HP Pavilion dv7 laptop. The installation worked smoothly and everything seems to be in place. There is just on issue, my audio driver, IDT, was not installed and whenever I try to listen to music through headphones, the audio comes through both the headphones and speakers. I wouldn't have noticed this if a friend of mine hadn't mentioned it to me. Also when I shutdown or restart the computer, a static like sound comes through the speakers. Everything works perfect on my Windows partition. Help from anyone would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. (Hardware)
