PCH Sound Card not detected on elementary OS 0.3.2 with HP Spectre x360


Hello everyone!

I have been using Linux the past few days, particularly elementary OS, and I have been blown away. The only issue that I am having is with the sound output. After days of researching the issue, I found that this is a known issue and I even found a supposed fix. However, the issue that I am now facing is that my onboard sound card is no longer appearing in the terminal when I run aplay -l. When I run this command, I receive the following output:
cody@cody-laptop:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: HDMI [HDA Intel HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: HDMI [HDA Intel HDMI], device 7: HDMI 1 [HDMI 1]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: HDMI [HDA Intel HDMI], device 8: HDMI 2 [HDMI 2]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
cody@cody-laptop:~$

Another card should be appearing though. The card that should appear is:
Card 1: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC283 Analog [ALC283 Analog]
The fix for the "no sound" issue is available at:
http://itsfoss.com/fix-sound-ubuntu-1404/

The first time I installed elementary OS 0.3.2 64-bit, I tried to find a solution and I was able to make Card 1 appear as an option. I wasn't able to solve the issue at that time though so I uninstalled and reinstalled the OS and now it is not appearing and I can't find a way to make that card re-appear.

Does anyone have any suggestions to make the card re-appear and/or to fix the sound on this laptop?

My specifications are...
elementary OS 0.3.2 Freya 64-bit
Built on Ubuntu 14.04
HP Spectre x360
Intel i5-5200U
4 GB of RAM

Thank you so much for your time!

Similar to my issue? http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ve-4175534057/ = blacklisting snd_hda_intel and snd_hda_codec_hdmi ?

My issue is that the soundcard is not showing up at all. I see in your post that the card did show, it just wasn't the default. My issue is that it isn't appearing at all. I thought that there was a terminal command I used in the past to make the card appear, but I can't remember it or find the resource where I found the command. Any suggestions to make the card appear in the list of available devices?

Try blacklist in any case.

I tried elementary OS and the sound card did not appear for aplay -l, and I just installed Solus OS and the sound card does not appear there either. Do you think that the issue with the driver not being present would be in 2 separate OS's?

Interesting: do you see differences (card there / not there) between a cold boot and a reboot? (see the differences in the "dmesg" output.. line by line)
To your question: I would expect the driver for the onboard card to be there in the linux OS.
#3 recommendation remain valid.
