I have tried so many things and can't get this to work. I am using the AMD A10-6500k on a ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ Motherboard. I have installed multiple versions of the AMD Catalyst Propietary driver and no matter what I do I cannot get Ubuntu to recognize my sound device. Here is some relevant info.

OK so answering my own question here. I should have looked at this before I tried all the things I tried. On the ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ the HDMI audio is disabled by default. That's it.
