I just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my Lenovo ThinkPad T410.

The inbuilt webcam is not displaying any video using Cheese.

Also I have no sound at all when playing video or audio. When the ubuntuOS boots up I don't even hear the sound at start up.

Please how do I get Audio and Video to work? I have checked the Sound settings, and in the hardware type my sound card reads - "Internal Audio 1 output/1 input - Analog Stereo Duplex"

Can I please get some assistance with installing the proper drivers or getting both audio and video to work?

Thank you.

I have a T410 too and have no problems with sound, although I can't get the webcam to work either.

This is probably too obvious, but try turning up the volume using the buttons above the keyboard? Also unplug headphones/headset to see if that makes a difference.
