Why don’t my laptop speakers work with Ubuntu?

I have installed Ubuntu on my HP-625 laptop. I have found my internal speaker is not working now, but if I plug in to the headphones, I can hear system sound and listen to music like normal. How can I fix this?

    1) Open gnome-volume-control
    2) Click on the "Output" tab.
    3) Change "Connector" to "Analog Headphones"
    4) Open gnome-alsamixer
    5) Turn the "Front" channel up to maximum volume.
    6) Close gnome-alsamixer
    7) Use gnome-volume-control to adjust volume/mute/unmute.

    Use the following commands:
    1) sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf &
    2) options snd-hda-intel model=generic
    3)Reboot

    if the term generic not work then replace with your manufacturer.
    from terminal: aplay -l | grep card

    Try this using a Terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal
    echo "options snd-hda-intel model=hp-dv5 enable_msi=1" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
    then reboot

    Hello Yusuf,

    check Ubuntu Troubleshooting Guide here
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting 

    also try this
    Click on the speaker icon in the Top right hand corner of the screen.A drop down menu will pop up, which has a slider to control the volume. Make sure that the volume is not set too low and not muted.
