I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my old laptop, a Presario V3000, along with Windows Vista Basic.

Everything worked fine till I tried to play some music. No sound came! I checked sound settings in Bash. Everything was okay. Also, sound card drivers are not available for Linux on HP website. What can I do?

Include pci=realloc kernel parameter in boot loader, It will fix sound, wireless and CPU overheating.
