Unhappy No sound in Gutsy Gibbon installed on my laptop

I have installed Gutsy Gibbon on my Compaq Presario V3000 Laptop and haven't been able to get any sound whatsoever. I had no sound problems with my earlier installation of Dapper Drake, though. I have checked that all the sound-sliders are unmuted in alsamixer. I have an nVidia sound card.

I get the following output when I do an "aplay -l":
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: CONEXANT Analog [CONEXANT Analog]
Subdevices: 0/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 1: Conexant Digital [Conexant Digital]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

The command "lspci -v" gives the following output reg. sound:
00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Unknown device 30b5
Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17
Memory at c0000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: <access denied>

I would be really grateful if someone could help me get sound working on my Gutsy Gibbon.
