Running a brand spankin new install of 13.10 and one of the first things I noticed when I first played around is that there was no sound. So naturally I go to the sound icon at the top of the screen and click on it. Having used ubuntu before breifly I know there is a program called rhythmbox that is usually there, to the non-existance of it kind of shocked me (although I know it is installed), but that wasnt the big problem. When I opened sound settings I found that there were NO outputs NO inputs etc... there wasn't even a dummy output, it was literraly just blank. Here is some info you may need:


-Alienware M14x R2

-Creative Labs sound card

Thanks in advance
