    Ubuntu 14.04.1 Fresh Install - No Sound

    Hi All,

    I have a fresh install of 14.04.1 on a Asus N550J and I have no sound whatsoever. I have googled and found the original culprit was because the HDMI was set to the default output, this was solved (I think) by following instructions I found on a site by creating /etc/asound.conf and adding the lines:

    defaults.pcm.card 1
    defaults.pcm.device 0
    defaults.ctl.card 1

    Now when I run alsamixer in a terminal, the first device it shows is the HDA Intel PCH device, but still I get no sound.

    I have also tried following other instructions I found on another site which involved purging alsabase and pulseaudio and then reinstalling them (which also required running apt-get install ubuntu-desktop too as it removed a few things). The only other instruction I can find is to edit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher and change RUN=yes to RUN=no, but it was already set to NO after installation.

    I also tried a fresh install with 14.10 but no difference.

    I have also realised that the sound works fine with headphones plugged in, just not when they are not.

    This is the output of aplay -l:
    Code:
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

      Subdevices: 1/1

    Please let me know if there is any more info you need to diagnose, or what other tips you have to fix this
