    Audio problem

    Hello everyone, I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit on my notebook HP630,
    and I noticed that the audio icon on the top bar has 3 horizontal dashes instead of the classic symbol of the volume.
    By typing the terminal command
    cat /proc/asound/cards
    I recive this output
    0 [Intel          ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
                  HDA Intel at 0xd6400000 irq 44
    Furthermore, raising all the volumes with alsamixer, the sound works perfectly.
    How can I fix this?
    Sorry for my English!!!!!!

    However, this solution worked for me (instructions are in German, but you can read the commands)

    In short, install Linux-Alsa-Driver-Module from ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa:

    $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa
    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install linux-alsa-driver-modules-$(uname -r)
    And restart.

    I can't promise it works for you, of course.

    *Note from hagfish52: I don't know if these alsa driver modules are the same ones installed by default in 12.04 or not, but it may be worth a try.
