Linux Mint 17.1

Toshiba Satellite S55-A5274

Sound Card: ?




I was previously using Windows 7(non-genuine copy) when I noticed I wasn't getting any sound, Also the computer was acting a bit strange. I remember trying to open iTunes around when this happened, but I can't say that's the culprit. So I reboot and then the Audio icon in the tray had a little red circle with an x and it was saying there was no audio device. So I download and install the drivers, didn't work. I tried google to no avail and then gave up because I was planning on switching to Linux anyway. Now I'm running Mint(based on Ubuntu) and I still have no sound! Which leads me to suspect that somehow the sound card broke, idk. Any help is much appreciated! No audio sucks!

Try installing a valid Windows operating system and see if that fixes the problem. Wipe, partition and format the drive beforehand.
