Sound Not Working in New Kernal

I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my HP laptop and at first everything was ok. Then, after the first update, the sound through the speakers stopped working (I can still get sound through headphones). I looked through all the sound settings, tried altering the alsa-base.conf file, nothing worked. Then, for the heck of it, I tried booting into the old kernal, and the sound worked just fine. For the time being, I'm just using the old kernal, but it would be kind of nice to figure out why the speakers aren't working in the new kernal. Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

How about loading the 'speaker' module?

Have you tried the 'speaker-test' program?

It never harms to run 'alsaconf' as root.
