    What do you mean with Linux 10? Do you mean mint?

    Anyhow, can you give us some information about your Sound Hardware in deep? Try this:
    hwinfo --sound
    What kernel do you run? Please make sure you have the alsa sound daemon running.
    /etc/init.d/alsasound status
    Do you may have PulseAudio enabled?

    so far

    when i type the first one into terminal this is what it tells me,
    hwinfo --sound
    > hal.1: read hal dataprocess 3381: arguments to dbus_move_error() were incorrect, assertion "(dest) == NULL || !dbus_error_is_set ((dest))" failed in file dbus-errors.c line 280.
    This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.

    when i type in the second one this is what it says,
    /etc/init.d/alsasound status
    bash: /etc/init.d/alsasound: No such file or directory

    this makes no sense i installed everything for alsa yesterday, and yes i am running linux mint 10. thanks!

    So when your runnung mint you should be able to upgrade easly to the next realase. Try this or this. The first is the Version with the GUI. Make sure you have a backup of your system.

    Else you can go on. As you can see, is there a kernel module for the Sound driver. Try to find it inside of the loaded module list:
    lsmod|grep  snd_hda_inte
    When nothing is displayed use the command:
    modprobe snd_hda_inte # You have to be root or use sudo before
    Maybe that will fix your sound problem, but i guess you have to go a bit more advanced.

    so far

    PS: Have you check alsamixer that you have all sounds stream no muted?

    $ lsmod|grep snd_hda_inte
    snd_hda_intel 37964 1
    snd_hda_codec 100919 1 snd_hda_intel
    snd_pcm 89104 2 snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec
    snd 64117 8 snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec,snd_hwdep,snd_pcm,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq,snd_timer,snd_seq_device
    snd_page_alloc 8588 2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm

    this is what it shows for the first command, i know its my drivers cuz the last time i put mint on here it was the same version and i had to find the drivers, the thread i found them at is gone now :( hopefully i can get something else figured out because my internet isnt fast enough to dl the newest linux :(

    sudo modprobe snd_hda_inte
    [sudo] password for katie:
    FATAL: Module snd_hda_inte not found.

    this is what i get on the second command :(
