    Can you please provide some more details? For example, what sound card do you have? Which version of Ubuntu are you running? Also, please add anything else that you think might be relevant. Dec 18, 2011 at 13:39

Fortunately, I solved my problem using this info.

This is what I did to get my sound working on the HPTS 300:

Open the terminal and type the following:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

This will open alsa-base.conf in gedit, the official text editor on the Gnome desktop. At the very end add the following 1 line to alsa-base.conf file:

options snd-hda-intel model=touchsmart
