  1. Hi,
    I have just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my HP pavilion dv4 1131tx laptop. Its on a dual boot with Vista.Sound works fine in vista. But in ubuntu following happens:
    1.at the login screen some strange sound,not login music or anything,starts coming from speakers,which settle down after few mins or goes off if i mute the sound.
    2.but when i try to play any song(obviously after un-muting) or anything,all plugins are installed,no sound comes.

    Can anybody suggest a fix soon? Please.
    Thanks in advance...
