Hello, I am back again. I was not allowed to bring my laptop or use the internet throughout.

Anyway, so I had to recently wipe my hard drive, and I cannot for the life of me find the windows xp cd (I think I might have thrown it away by accident).
Well, since there was no disk, I installed Ubuntu (flavor of linux obviously) because it was free software. So..... with this new... uh... twist how do I proceed?

Sound drivers are never included with an O/S.
Go to the manufacturers website and enter make and model of product.
Support/downloads and drivers.
I have no idea if you'll find Linux support though.

Right, and when I had windows xp, I did get the drivers, but still no sound came out of either the speakers or headphones I would plug in. So what could be the problem? the speakers? the motherboard?

Sorry i wish i could be more help!but i'm a little out of my element when questions go into laptop built in hardware.
i've always managed to get audio drivers to work by going to the manufacturers or oem's website and downloading the appropriate file.
If you were more specific it would go along way.
Maker and model of laptop?
Realtek or VIA drivers etc..
