I just installed LXDE on my HP Pavilion dv 1411se laptop and have no sound. Thanks!

This worked for my ICH7 chipset


Edit the "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base" file
Note before Gloria the file is /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base without a conf:

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

add at the very end:

options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=auto [auto works better]

Replace auto with the brand of your computer - acer, asus, dell, toshiba and others. Macbook pro has mbpx where x is the "generation" of Macbook Pro
Use minor letters. Lots of brands can be used, but if you have an unusual brand you may have to stay with auto
If you have another sound card and don't want the IHC sound to be the default set index=-2

In case of slightly distorted, weird, crackled sound on Apple Macs and perhaps other computers too try this:

gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local

Add two following lines to the end of file before "exit 0":

rmmod snd_hda_intel
modprobe snd_hda_intel

This unloads and reloads the Intel sound module

NOTE: For all solutions here to work you must reboot.
