asus sound driver problem


hello there. i just bought a new asus ultrabook s505cm-xx188h laptop. which has the following configuration.

Intel Core i5 3317U 1.7Ghz (Turbo 2.6Ghz) CPU, 15.6" (1366 x 768) Display, 4GB DDR3, 24GB MSSD + 500GB HDD, Intel HM76 Chipset, 2GB DDR3 nVidia GT635M (Support nVidia 3D Vision), VGA (D-Sub), HDMI, DVD-S Writer, SonicMaster Speakers, Wireless-N, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0, 4 Cell 2950mAh Battery, 720p WebCam, 1 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, SD Card Reader, Windows 8 64bit.

it had come with windows 8, but i wiped everything and installed ubuntu 12.10 in it. when i used to play the songs (even if its on youtube or offline) or play video (online or offline) the sound would skip for a half a second every few minutes. so i downloaded the driver from the realtek website and installed that. after i rebooted the system there was no sound at all. now i have no sound in my system. can anyone help me with correct sound drivers. i think i have realtek sound card in my laptop with hd. when i do lspci on it it would give me the following output

Did you try to update your system? and update all audio software installed on your distro.
