Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
Actually a great place to start would be the Linux Mint forums. There are a TON of seasoned long-time Linux Mint users there who REALLY know their stuff, and could likely either get you pointed in the right direction, or perhaps even just "hand" you a command line (customized to your situation) which would rectify your issue. (Please see the attached link to get directly to the official Linux Mint support forum)
I will say that in my experience (regarding errors stemming from an interrupted / crashed Linux update operation or a (basically) corrupted grub, I've always found it best to just "bite the bullet" and do a full wipe and reinstall your preferred distro. Also: So far (about 3-4 months now), Mint 18 has been nothing but good to me; so you might consider stepping up to that instead, as there have been a TON of bug fixes and improvements since 13.
For folks with a decent amount of system RAM and video card, I'd recommend the "cinnamon" version. For older computers with 2 GB (or less) of RAM, I'd stick with "MATE" (which is essentially "gnome".
I'm very happy to "meet" another fellow Linux user, and I wish you the best of luck!!

If you are going to use your restore disks, the system will go back to the factroy settings, which means it will work in a way it worked when you purchased it. So as a result you should surely have your sound card working.
However any software or data which you loaded after purchasing will be lost as well.
Also before using the PC restore, you may also try the system restore.
System restore is a utility using which we can take the system back to a date when it was working fine. It will undo all the changes happened after the chosen date.
Steps for system Restore
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
Than choose a date in the calender when you think that it was working fine.
Any software and programs installed after the chosen date will not be there. You should not loose your data as well.
I hope that i have answered your query.
All the best
