    Audio HDA-Intel Card..disappeared

    hi guys..can I explain you a problem?

    i've reinstalled Gutsy after some problems with my wireless card in Hardy..like the first time,i had a problem with the audio card: it usually works,but with an horrible whistle! So,like 6 months ago,I've installed newer alsa drivers(i used the same as the fisrt time in Gutsy),added the module in /etc/modules...and now my Audio Card is not recognized by the system! if i run "alsaconf" i can configure it,but then nothing happens and the system doesn't find it.

    I also ran "lspci | grep 'audio'" but ubuntu didn't return nothing..
    How can I try to get it work again? if you need some additional informations let me know..hope someone can help me!

    P.S. I have an integrated Intel Sound Card.

    P.P.S. Sorry for my awful english!

    what does "dmesg | grep snd_" (w/o quotes) show?

    If there is a bunch of errors, then you have the same problem as my sisters laptop.

    The fix for me was to:

    sudo rm -rf /var/cache/apt/*
    sudo mkdir -p /var/cache/apt/archives/partial
    sudo apt-get autoclean

    then open synaptic package manager and choose reinstall for everything kernel related and everything alsa related.

    Sounds ridiculous, but it worked!

    Any suggestions on what might be wrong if "dmesg | grep snd_" does not report any errors at all, yet there is no sound from the HDA-Intel audio subsystem?

    the first thing I can imagine is...to UNmute volumes in alsamixer,but probably you have already done it!
