Full Specs for this laptop can be found in this post
Here is the edited lspci -vvnn(for my soundcards)

Fresh Install, able to surf the internet, saw that youtube needed a plugin.. Found the forum solution, Kept on rockin
Tried to watch a video, no sound, checked alsamixer, changed settings accordingly
I can visually see the audio in pulse audio's volume control(in playback tab and others), but I get no audio from any of the players, or youtube/facebook/.. etc
can't remember if there was anything else.. Hope this helps cut out some confusion.

--[Actions taken to fix:
-apt-get update --[on fresh install
-apt-get upgrade --[ on fresh install
-alsamixer had sound at half, sound reset to 0db
-forum/google search against make/model/soundcard/no audio
-Hardware/audio section of this forum said to try installing paman from Synaptic Package Manager

see if you get any sound running this in your terminal
Code:
aplay -vv /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav


if not try adding
Code:
options snd-hda-intel model=dell
to your modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file (/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf) using your favorite editor (nano, gedit, etc) as root/sudo. just add it at below the last existing line

*be sure to save your changes

reboot

test your sound again

regards
mac

Thanks for your help mac,

I don't know if this helps or not, but this is what I got after entering the code

pwnsauce@PepPC ~ $ aplay -vv /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav
Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono
ALSA <-> PulseAudio PCM I/O Plugin
Its setup is:

subformat : STD
channels : 1

exact rate : 48000 (48000/1)

silence_threshold: 0
silence_size : 0

##### + | 11%
pwnsauce@PepPC ~ $

And the last two lines of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf after reboot
# Keep snd-usb-audio from beeing loaded as first soundcard
options snd-usb-audio index=-2
options snd-hda-intel model=dell

Still no sound though

okay, remove the last entry in alsa-base.conf and try this
Code:
options snd-hda-intel model=auto


reboot
retry

No luck there either

When I rebooted, I took a glimpse at alsamixer and noticed that some of the settings had changed. I made sure everything that I could change, went to 0db, and everything that was muted, unmuted.

--[Last two lines of alsa-base.conf after reboot

options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=alienware

seems to be the accepted fix .. see here:
http://www.linlap.com/wiki/alienware+m17x+r3
and
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1781074

Worth a shot :)

Installing Pulse Audio usually ends up fixing all the sound problems in Peppermint
Code:
site:peppermintos.net pulseaudio
in Google search will find examples

Can you post the output from:
Code:
cat /proc/asound/card0/codec* | grep Codec


and the last 5 lines of your alsa-base.conf:
Code:
gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf


[EDIT]

After looking at your pic, it looks like the codec is:-
IDT 92HD73C1X5

So you want to try these options (one at a time) and reboot between them, till you find one that works.
(it's IMPORTANT that you reboot between attempts)

STAC92HD73*
===========
options snd-hda-intel model=ref
options snd-hda-intel model=no-jd
options snd-hda-intel model=intel
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6-amic
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6-dmic
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-eq
options snd-hda-intel model=alienware
options snd-hda-intel model=auto

Personally I'd take a lead from this posting:
http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.kde.bugs/524197
and try:-
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6-amic
first.

--[Not sure if you still needed this after your edit..

pwnsauce@PepPC ~ $ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec* | grep Codec
Codec: IDT 92HD73C1X5
pwnsauce@PepPC ~ $

--[I opted to show you more than 5 lines to point out this..
# Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index 0
options bt87x index=-2
options cx88_alsa index=-2
options saa7134-alsa index=-2
options snd-atiixp-modem index=-2
options snd-intel8x0m index=-2
options snd-via82xx-modem index=-2
options snd-usb-audio index=-2
options snd-usb-caiaq index=-2
options snd-usb-ua101 index=-2
options snd-usb-us122l index=-2
options snd-usb-usx2y index=-2
# Ubuntu #62691, enable MPU for snd-cmipci
options snd-cmipci mpu_port=0x330 fm_port=0x388
# Keep snd-pcsp from being loaded as first soundcard
options snd-pcsp index=-2
# Keep snd-usb-audio from beeing loaded as first soundcard
options snd-usb-audio index=-2
options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=alienware

While looking through the links, this argument caught my eye. I wasn't sure if I should change this based on information in my system. Trying the other lines..

edit: Does it matter if I leave the index option in there? and just replace everything after model=?
