You did not mention what version of Kubuntu you are installing/have 
installed. A quick google tells me that other people have had problems 
with sound on that laptop.

Have you installed the proprietary drivers for your video card? 
Somewhere in the menu there should be an item called Hardware drivers 
(or similar).

To find out the exact name of your audio chip we can run the following 
command in a terminal:
lspci | grep Audio

There is a thread at ubuntuforums.org with a possible solution (for 
Lucid Lynx):
