I have a laptop using the Intel 80281DB sound chip. I've installed Kubuntu 
Hardy on it and have no sound at all. I've been to alsamixer and checked the 
sound levels. I also found the threads that said to turn on the external 
amplifier and then turn it off. The only way I found to do this was to go to 
alsamixer, turn on the external switch, then "alsactl store 0", then go to 
alsamixer, turn the switch off, then again "alactl store 0". I still have no 

Can anyone offer me any help with this?
