Done E: Unable to locate package linux-alsa-driver-modules-3.2.0-24-generic E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-alsa-driver-modules-3.2.0-24-generic' – Asalam Jun 13 '12 at 12:42
It is because the team didn't built yet the modules for your kernel. See here: – Frantique Jun 13 '12 at 14:28

I got the same problem and after three weaks of research, installing and uninstalling drivers, performing a couple of clean installations, and more, I was able to fix the problem by installing a new kernel.

Now I am running Ubuntu 12.04 with latest kernel, 3.4.4. Everything is working great. I think that this solution is not recommended but if you decide to try it here is how:

  1. Download kernel modules from this page, depending on your platform amd64 or i386.

  2. Execude this commad (change files except of your downloaded files):

    sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.4.4-030404_3.4.4-030404.201206221555_all.deb linux-headers-3.4.4-030404-generic_3.4.4-030404.201206221555_i386.deb linux-image-3.4.4-030404-generic_3.4.4-030404.201206221555_i386.deb linux-image-extra-3.4.4-030404-generic_3.4.4-030404.201206221555_i386.deb
  3. Then update GRUB:

    sudo update-grub
  4. Reboot:

    sudo reboot
