the same with me (inspiron 1525). Attached the result of alsa-info.sh

same with my inspiron 1525, sound is not working out of the box

however, compiling/installing the new alsa drivers from the "alsa-source" package fixes the problem.

looks like the kernel drivers are too old

It's not fixed in HARDY.
After a clean upgrade yesterday, sound was not anymore working.

Computer could not detect my Inspiron 1525 sound card.

I had to compile/install the new alsa drivers from the "alsa-source" package fixes the problem.

I did follow instructrions there :
