Not to worry I'm not going to simply moan that my sound doesn't work and leave you to verbally bash me, I've been trying to find a solution most of the night without success, so this is my last port of call.
Basically HP-DV7. There are a few forum posts about sound compatibilities, although nothing that seems to have fixed mine. I've done an alsa-info.sh run and the results can be found
The device is detected but once KDE starts it reports it's not usable and fails back to default.
I did try to work out which HD-Audio-Model it was from the list but got abit confused. Currently I have added
options snd-hda-intel model=hp-dv5
to the /etc/mod-probe.d/dist-alsa.conf file.
Anyone got any further guidance?
