lspci shows me this:
80:01.0 Audio device: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8237A/VT8251 HDA Controller (rev 10)
I have openchrome installed (it appears installed in the software center) but I can't hear any sounds.

As you can see my sound card is a VIA 64MB. I know I can't expect much, but listening to music should be OK. I installed Ubuntu 11.04, and immediately upgraded to 11.10.

I think that with my video card, I can't use Unity 3d (right now I'm using unity 2d), but when I go to System Info > graphics section, it shows me: Driver: unknown. It seems to me that via graphics drivers are not working nor are sounds via drivers.
