I don't have any sound, only dummy output which doesn't work, and following the ubuntu guide for troubleshooting sound, I get stuck at loading the modules. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting (This is the guide I'm trying to follow) To preface this, I have had sound working before on fresh install and it seemed to stop working when I shut my laptop lid. And in my quest to fix the issue, I have updated to kernel 4.18.8 using ukuu which appears to work fine other than the sound still not working. So, when I get to step 4 of the guide, I get no soundcard found. Then, when I go to check if the modules are installed (step 5 of the guide), I get a normal result. However, using alsa info to give me an output, it appears to not have any modules actually loaded. http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=d1320e6df212a41f4dccda8b33ff5fe13c4adc86 That is the output of alsainfo as suggested by a number of forums for sound troubles. via this link: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio/AlsaInfo Would greatly appreciate help.
