It worked until I re-booted the computer later and I had to enter the same Terminal command to get the sound working again. I will investigate a more permanent solution, YouTube videos are great especially for a Newbie like me. Thanks for any answer.
As a suggestion, you might want to create a new thread, as this is a separate topic and you might get more folks to take a look at it since this one is marked "SOLVED." Please be sure to include information about your sound chip using...
lspci -v | grep -i -A7 audio
