Bug Description

I was having no sound; I did 'find /lib/modules/`uname -r` | grep snd' and found drivers were installed.
lspci -v | grep -A7 -i "audio" produced the following output:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 03)
 Subsystem: Gateway 2000 Device 4037
 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11
 Memory at 73100000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
 Capabilities: <access denied>
 Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

then I:
sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel

after which sound is now working. I have added it to my /etc/modules. I have not yet rebooted to confirm persistance.

I am running Ubuntu 12.04
