I am upgrading and old Dell 9100 that came with a Dell (OEM) Audigy LS sound card and Windows XP. Everything is working OK except the sound.
When you try to play a sound, all you get is static or white noise. When the playing stops, the static goes away. I used the test buttons in the sound settings as well as playing sound from the browser.
I have played with alsamixer to get 63 <> 63.
I completely re-installed Ubuntu also.
I played around with pulseaudio also.
I selected analog input on the input tab of the sound settings.
The sound card shows up as SB0310 Audigy LS.
Any other suggestions?
