14 I had an issue very similiar to this when I purchased my Acer Extensa 5620.
15 After looking around for a long time I found out that the version of alsa
16 that was being used in my kernel at the time didn't well support my sound
17 card. I'm not sure about what alsa version is being used in the latest kernel
18 now but it doesn't hurt to give it a go. Also, I had to modprobe
19 snd_hda_intel with model=acer. Before inserting the module with the model
20 param I was at the same exact spot you are at now. hope this helps
