So I recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my MSI GX740-235US laptop. My knowledge of Linux is very limited, so I don't know a whole lot about this stuff. Anyway, whenever a sound/music played it would sound very muffled, as if someone held a pillow over the speaker or something.
I figured it had to do with my drivers as I would hear that muffle sound very briefly when a sound would play on Windows before what I'm assuming to be the driver kicked in and fixed it. So after trying to figure out how to install the Realtek HD drivers, (yes I even have a hard time with that) a friend sort of guided me through it. He got me to the directory I extracted everything to and had me "sudo .install" the stuff. It did a whole bunch of things and I restarted the laptop. Now I don't hear a bloody thing.
I'd appreciate it if someone could lend a hand here.
