I was having the same problem as well for my netbook. I tried many things and I still couldnt get it to work. I finally tried this and now it works. Try this out:

Open up terminal:

gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Add this at the very bottom
options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=auto

Reboot, then after reboot open the terminal gain and run


Make sure all the volumes are turned up using the arrow keys. IF there an M at the bottom of any of them, press M to unmute it and teh M will disapear. Try that out :D
