I have installed Linux mint and windows 7 as a dual boot on my fujitsu E8020 laptop, windows 7 is no problem using the Realtek HD audio manager using AC290 codecs but Mint, Ubuntu and Sabayon will not see any audio let alone hear anything on the laptop and only shows the built in audio which doesn’t make any sound at all, not on any music or videos with VLC player but works well with win 7, I have tried for two days to get it going, on the point of junking all Linux and sticking to Windows 7 which works well with VLC, which is a shame as it’s taken a long time to set up a dual boot system laptop! Is there anyone or anything I can do to rectify my problem.
Thank you for any help anybody might give
