  1. Hi, please try solution posted here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1332261
  2. didn't work...
    its seem i need alsa 1.02.3
    but can't seem to install it.....
  3. First off, have you tried installing the Driver off of Nvidia's site, rather than using the one automatically installed by Ubuntu? They have Linux native drivers for both 32-bit and 64-bit. I'd try that out if you haven't already.

    What do you mean by "but can't seem to install it..." I opened a terminal, typed in 'sudo apt-get install alsamixer' and it couldn't find the package. If this is the case, then a quick Google search will yield a direct download of the program. If you tried installing it via the downloaded program, what kind of errors/issues are you getting?
  4. I typed alsamixer in terminal
    i got alsamixer v1.0.22
    but everytime i press f6 for "select sound card"
    i get options
    -(default)
    0. HDA ATI SB
    1. HDA NVIDIA

    since I have nvidia GT 240.
    i went with HDA nvidia but its then says
    this sound device does not have any controls.

    but some tuto say i need alsa v1.0.23
    that one i cant seem to install.
    i have download them but its not excute file

    i went to nvidia to got card drive which gives me this error

    Could not open the file /home/mediaserver/Downlo…x86_64-195.36.24-pkg2.run.
