like I already said, Sound is not working on my ASUS Eee PC 1000H.

After upgrading to Windows Service Pack 3 it doesn't work on my Windows XP anymore, so I decided to install Ubuntu 12.10 (next to Windows XP) on my Computer so I can listen to music again.

I really like Ubuntu 12.10, but the sound still doesn't work :(

When I go into Sound Settings and look at output devices I can only see "Dummy-Output". So I thought it only might be a missing driver, but I didn't find one for my 1000H.

I'm really thankful for any help :) Markus

I entered the following command into the console "hwinfo --sound" It came out this: > hal.1: read hal dataprocess 3249: arguments to dbus_move_error() were incorrect, assertion "(dest) == NULL || !dbus_error_is_set ((dest))" failed in file ../../dbus/dbus-errors.c line 282. This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library. libhal.c 3483 : Error unsubscribing to signals, error=The name org.freedesktop.Hal was not provided by any .service files Maybe this will help :) –  Markus Feb 17 '13 at 11:02
HAL no longer exists on ubuntu so this is OK. However, there should be a sound hardware printed anyway. Chances are that you somehow fried your sound hardware so that both Windows XP and ubuntu can't detect it any more. –  aquaherd Feb 17 '13 at 11:13
Okay... At least I will now stop looking for drivers and waste time :D –  Markus Feb 18 '13 at 19:05
