I have a Dell laptop pre-installed with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, after a recent auto update from Software Updater I now have no sound.

I did the Audio test on all the devices listed in the Settings-Sound panel and no sound on any.

:=> lspci -nnk | grep -A2 Audio

  • The driver seems to be fine. Can you please include the output of aplay -L and pactl list sinks in your question? Did you verify that all the necessary audio channels are unmuted and turned up in alsamixer? Commented Jul 30, 2016 at 20:22
  • I added teh aplay and pactl outputs... and yes I've checked alsamixer and it all looks ok.
