Your sound card is not properly configured. I note:
aplay: device_list:240: no soundcards found...
arecord: device_list:240: no soundcards found...
and I note:
[ 17.132472] ALSA sound/pci/hda/patch_realtek.c:1358: realtek: No valid SSID, checking pincfg 0x4015812d for NID 0x1d
[ 20.870626] <30>alsactl: Found hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Realtek ALC268" "HDA:10ec0268,1179ff66,00100003 HDA:11c11040,11790001,00100200" "0x1179" "0xff66"
[ 20.870639] <30>alsactl: Hardware is initialized using a generic method
so the alsa sound driver could not detect the SSID to tune the alsa configuration for your PC's ALC268 hardware audio codec.
I assume you checked your BIOS settings to ensure your sound device is switched ON ?
I note these settings from the HD-Audio-Models.txt file from the alsa documentation ( a copy of which should be on your PC ) :
quanta-il1 Quanta IL1 mini-notebook
3stack 3-stack model
toshiba Toshiba A205
acer Acer laptops
acer-dmic Acer laptops with digital-mic
acer-aspire Acer Aspire One
dell Dell OEM laptops (Vostro 1200)
zepto Zepto laptops
test for testing/debugging purpose, almost all controls can
adjusted. Appearing only when compiled with
auto auto-config reading BIOS (default)
and you could try forcing one of those model options on your Toshiba L305. Perhaps start with the model option 'toshiba'. You need to find the correct file to place that option inside. Possibly add the following line to the file (if it exists in Fedora, ...if not create the file) :
options snd-hda-intel model=toshiba
restart and test. If 'toshiba' does not work, try another option in the list.
