    Hello,

    I've upgraded my old MacBook (MacBook1,1/Early 2006) with a new SSD, 2GB RAM and a fresh installation of Snow Leopard (Retail).

    Everything runs MUCH smoother now, except that there is no more sound (no sound device found). I don't think it's a hardware problem, since the startup sound (chime) still works perfectly. Everything worked fine with OS X 10.4.

    I tried a SMC and PRAM reset, but didn't help.

    Some results on Google said that I should try to stick in some headphones and that should do the trick, but it didn't.

    Thanks for any help, I really appreciate it.

    Cheers

    Thanks sreedy for the quick reply. I tried your trick and unfortunately it didn't work. I'm not sure if this is the same problem, because I don't have any sound device at all (listed in my System Preferences).

    Hi,

    This won't help but I wonder if you have the same issue when you create a new administrator account.

    If it was me I'd bite the bullet, zero the drive (assuming you can do that with a SSD. I have no experience with them.), and clean install Snow Leopard again.
