I checked this and reinstalled it. I saw this in the alsa-base
For ALSA to work on a system with a given sound card,
there must be an ALSA driver for that card in the kernel.
At wits end here I was able to get thru to ubuntu (paid) support and
they are aware of this problem and apparently the Dell XPS driver is not
in the current kernel (a bug in the build). I was advised to wait until
there is new kernel build and release and then do an update.
I want to thank you all for all the help.
