    Sorry, as a total beginner I installed Ubuntu earlier today and got it working :D

    I notice however that I don't have any sound - most of the other stuff so far worked out of the box but how would I handle this one? I assume it's a driver missing:(

    The current soundcard integrated into the motherboard is P5V800-Mx Series - hope that helps.

    Open terminal and type alsamixer. Make sure nothing is muted (MM). See sshot.
    Run in terminal aplay -l See if the card is recognized.
