Errm. What is the actual problem and where is your sound configuration?

Please send us the output from step 3 and step 4 from this procedure:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshootingProcedure

Please also specify the exact model and make of pc that you are using.

Please make sure to send us the Pastebin URL that was generated during step 3.

Solved for me since I HAVE INTEL hda sound:

I want to thank you Mark Rijckenberg,
adding the information to alsa-base.conf solved it for my new HP laptop with Intel HDA sound hardware: in latest 9.10

I never was able to successfully download "gnome-alsamixer" which was not found during apt-get downloads but this worked:

ADD THIS TO BOTTOM OF the alsa-base.conf FILE AND SAVE

# Keep snd-pcsp from being loaded as first soundcard
options snd-pcsp index=-2
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=hp-dv5
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1

Some additional information for folks who have the HP G71 laptops: I have found that while" options snd-hda-intel model=hp-dv5" does work for this model, it "farts" at you on shutdown. I have since found that if you change this line to" options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4" on this machine, it works better and cures the "fart" sound on exit. Even though this is marked for HP mini machines, it appears to be correct for the G71 machines as will. Hope this info will help someone.
