I've just installed Ubuntu 11.10 (a successful upgrade from 10.04 ->
11.04 -> 11.10 from within the distro itself) & I'm having real problems
getting any sound at all.
I don't know if the sound worked on 10.04 or 11.04 as I didn't hang
about long enough to find out; I just went straight to 11.10 as soon as
Using headphones I can hear audio static when playback (either from
audio CD or You Tube) is running as I can over the several sets of
speakers I've tried. I've installed all the ALSA stuff & Pulse too as
well as the restricted extras.

Apologies for replying to my own thread but just in case anybody else
has this problem or is scouring Google late one night looking for an
answer, basically you have to ascertain which card you have like so:
then add it to `alsa-base.conf` thusly:
`sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf`
replacing vim with another text editor if you don't use Vim.
Then add at the tail of the file:
`options snd-hda-intel model=MODEL`
with `MODEL` being replaced by the model of your card. I got away with
using `basic` YMMV.
Then reboot & all should be OK.
