Got my new laptop last week. Installed Ubuntu 8.10 and discovered that 
my sound ain't working. Its working with vista though. All necessary 
codecs are installed and the appropriate modules are loaded.
The audio-settings are showing lots of different choices like:
HDA Intel ALC663 Digital/Analog (ALSA) and (OSS)
ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
OSS - Open Sound System

Here is the copy-paste report from the console:
