By any chance do you have a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! 24 Bit sound card in there. I'm not sure how relevant this will be but when I had one, it would intermittently work, at times it would just stop outputting sound and I would have to restart the computer (under Windows). Then one day it just all together died. When it was failing, its quality in Ubuntu Linux was terrible. If you have an integrated sound chip I would check with your board/computer manufacturer and locate and updated driver. If you have a sound card, try updating the drivers for the sound card. At last resort though, you could disable the integrated sound chip (if you have one) or replace the sound card and that should correct your issues.

Put it this way, let me know what kind of computer it is, sound card, or board if it is a custom build, and I'll hunt you down a driver. ;)
