Hello,
I am new to Ubuntu and I have been trying to solve this problem for several hours now with no luck. I have gone through all sorts of tutorials and tried modifying /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.

However, this appears to be a driver issue. The driver is not showing up on my ALSA Information Script-

I also have not been able to find the proper sound driver or any fixes that worked to any extent.

In terminal run
sudo lshw -C multimedia and see what that has to say about the card and driver.

You don't even have a driver loaded. It's hard to tell if that was the case originally or as a result of your modifications.

Try:

sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel

If that doesn't work, please post any error output. Also, I would suggest you try the alsa info script in a LiveCD environment.

How would I go about fixing these files? Do these seem like they are most likely causing my sound issue?
