This is a dead horse, beaten to death in this support list. Didja google??
Open a terminal window, type "alsamixer"
Use that to unmute (m) your outputs that show that they are muted (mm)
Adjust your volume sliders to around 85%. (use up/down keys) Hit 'esc'
Then, in a terminal window, type "pavucontrol". If it ain't there,
install it. Click on configuration, click on audio adapter and set the
type of sound/speaker output you have. If you do not have a standalone
mike (not a headset), do not select a setting with a mike in it.
Then click on output devices. Make sure nothing is muted. Set the volume
Click on playback and in another terminal or program play a sound file,
keeping one eye on the playback. As the file is being played, you
should see the indicator bouncing with the intensity of the sound being
played back. Your playback device here should be what you set in
Configuration. Click on the box to set, if necessary. It should not be
muted, the sound should be set to 90% and your speakers MUST BE ON,
PLUGGED IN AND TURNED UP!
You should be playing sounds by now. It's simple ALSA is what makes the
sound system happen at all. Pulse sits on top and remembers what
settings you used for a program when you used it last. So, ALSA must be
set correctly, and then pulse must be set correctly. It'll work. Intel
is so common, it's a pretty much a no-brainer, not requiring jumping
through hoops to use, UNLESS you followed instructions from 2009 to set
up .asound files and the like. They are deprecated. Dead parrot. Don't
use. Let ALSA just work, and let pulse set up the room full of speakers. Ric
