[ubuntu] Wonderful New Phenomenon In Ubuntu Jaunty-Dell

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, This post is gonna get the Ubuntu know-alls bamboozled, I'm sure. I have had recurrent sound problems with my Dell Inspiron 1440 with Dual boot of Windows Vista and Ubuntu Jaunty. Earlier sound used to work like, 5% of the time. Then I reinstalled Jaunty, then updated using Synaptics. But still, no sound. But headphones we working fine though. I don't like imperfection in my system. If I don't have sound, I better not have Ubuntu. Now, I found a solution (not a solution, but a phenomenon, as I call it). When I start up my comp, I have to boot Vista, when the User/passwd screen appears, restart and now load Jaunty. By this process, always sound start working in Jaunty. Yes 100%. But if I directly load Jaunty, no sound 100% sure. Now this phenomenon should leave Jaunty developers red faced, for sure. Can someone help me get sound properly in my system? I have spent, like eons, trying to solve this problem. Thanks (Hardware)
