No sound in Linux Ubuntu with ALC888 soundcard

Hello

I have a new pc Dell Studio Desktop 540 MT with a ALC888 soundcard.

On Windows Vista there is normal sound, but Linux Ubuntu 8.10 or 9.04 have no sound.

I tried several tips and tricks but can't fix it. Is there a solution for this problem? I hope somebody can help me.

Thanks (and sorry for the bad english)

Same problem with my Dell Studio MT 540 MT and UBUNTU 9.04.

It seems taht this sound card is working in one Dell Studio Slim putting this line in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base:

options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=1 model=6stack-dell

===================================================================

And it works!!  (/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf)
