sound lost after Hardy upgrade

I also had no sound after upgrading to Hardy from Gutsy.

Check this forum for troubleshooting sound problems:


http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=205449

What my problem was, was that the sound module was not being loaded.
I added 'snd-hda-intel' to the end of my /etc/modules file, and I got
sound immediately, without rebooting.
If you go through the steps in that post, you can determine which
driver module your sound card uses and then add it
to the end of /etc/modules.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
