Sound not working after changing machine

My desktop recently crashed. I had a spare machine here, completely different hardware, but I knew I could simply swap harddisks, and it would probably work. So I swapped the old harddisk into the new machine, booted up, and everything worked like nothing happened. Everything except sound. I tried the front and back (green) 3.5mm sound output jack.

I wonder what I can do to fix this?

What ubuntu version are you running?

Does the Speaker Icon show in your taskbar? If yes, right click it and select "Sound Preferences". Now in the Hardware tab check what is selected.

I'm running 11.04, and I see no speaker icon. But i got it working via the system settings > sound. The sound was muted and I probably overlooked that.
