This is one of the fixes I found
I am running ALSA exclusively and ran all the updates
I used this article as a basis for the fix:https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HdaIntelSoundHowto
add at the end of the file:
options snd-hda-intel model=laptop
However when I run the above command this is what I get:
Warning: unknown mime-type for "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base" -- using "application/octet-stream"
Error: no write permission for file "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base"
????? any ideas
