Try the following:

To fix the system's volume control buttons, run:

$ gnome-sound-properties

in "Default Mixer Tracks", select PCM.

Subject: Dell Inspiron 1420 multimedia buttons don't work

Hi everybody,

I've a Dell Inspiron 1420 with Ubuntu 7.10 installed. It's working
fine, but my multimedia
buttons don't work. For example, when i press the mute button, it
shows in the screen
that volume is mute, but don't work, because i can listen sound.

Could anyone help me?

Thanks in advance,
