Play a music CD or mp3 file, open a terminal and type "alsamixer", unmute channels with the "m" key and increase sliders with the up arrow key until you get sound. If that does not work go to Sound and Video and play with the Pulse settings until you get sound. Also try Preferences, Sound and do the tests until you get sound.

Hi, another idea if lagagnon's suggestion doesn't help . . .

You have HDA sound, hope the solutions here can help:
