Ubuntu: Sound not working HDA-Intel Ubuntu 14.04



Question:

Tried all the other "sound not working" posts i think, lost count.

purge/reinstall alsa and pulse, reboot, add user to audio group, various lines in the alsa config file such as "options snd-hda-intel model=" then tried different options like generic, auto, basic, default, etc. tried pulseaudio -k && sudo alsa force-reload a few times, with and without rebooting.

Hardware: 16gb ram, core I7-4790, Intel Haswell mboard with onboard sound and graphics Multimedia: Audio Adapter: HDA-Intel-HDA Intel HDMI OS: Ubuntu server 14.04 with ubuntu-desktop installed.

GUI sound settings lists only the dummy sound card

alsamixer -c 0

Thank you for your time and help :)


UPDATE: I have now added a Creative Soundblaster play 2 USB sound card and disabled the onboard from the BIOS. On my Ubuntu desktop it works right away so the hardware works for sure. On the server its not doing anything. Still only a dummy output in the sound settings (pulse).

reinstalled/purged/etc but to no avail.

alsamixer is not opening at all any more, proc/asound doesn't exist

sudo aplay -l  aplay: device_list:268: no soundcards found...    lspci -v | grep -A7 -i "audio"  00:03.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor HD Audio Controller (rev 06)      Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.
