[ubuntu] Soundcard not detected on Ubuntu 10.04

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – My problem is, my sound card isn't detected. It's hard to enjoy a music or a movie without sound. I have a RealTek AC'97 sound card in my machine. I can't get the system to detect my sound card. I have drivers downloaded from RealTek, and have unsuccessfully made an attempt to install them. ***I am kinda limited on what I can do right now, I am having a problem with panels (See other thread HERE)*** I have access to a terminal (and sudo), the control center, sound properties , and internet. Limitations are due to no way to access apps via panels, panels are gone. (Hardware)
