Intel has greatly improved its support for Linux, and they put together a nice project which can be found here. You can download and install Intel(R) Graphics Installer for Linux, either the 32bit version or the 64bit version, and test it for your Intel video card. They named it Graphics Installer for Ubuntu* 13.10 but it should work for Ubuntu 12.04 too.

It seems like the device was detected (as above transcripts show) but Pulse didn't recognize it. Then I executed: killall pulseaudio pulseaudio -k and now it works - even when the device has not been plugged-in prior to booting. At the end of the day its worth giving above two commands a try and see if that does the trick already.
