    I run MINT Linux not Ubuntu.

    Anywho, I used alsamixer to turn everything way up. But, no luck..

    If anyone has points I'd love to hear from you. Also I can open a SSH or Remote Desktop system so you can just take control and try...

    Any advice/tips/docs or thigns to check..?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Do you also have pulse audio installed? If so, remove it and try to reinstall ALSA.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
