I hate ALSA. I wish I knew of an alternative. *bump* I've got the same deal.

try killing pulseaudio, it could be that it is conflicting with alsa.
In terminal:

$ pulseaudio -k

I had similar sound troubles on my HP laptop also but this fixed it, thanks to ohingst in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=993075

Open terminal and type:

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base

Add to the bottom of this file:

options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1

Exit and save with CTRL-X

Reboot. It worked for me. You might need to change the 'snd-hda-intel' to whatever your device is known by, but I wouldn't know about that!
