Try a different Ubuntu based version. Mint or Zorin OS.

I have sound problems too after upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10 and i can`t find a solution. I`ve remove all pulse audio and reinstall all . Editing speech-dispatcher file by using the following command: sudo gedit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher, it is still set RUN=no. In the windows settings/audio it shows the built in speakers, the sound from Skype message doesn’t play and no login/logoff sound, no drum. What can i do? Any idea? Thank you

"I have sound problems too after upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10"

Ubuntu 13.10 is severely outdated & was never an LTS (long term support) version. It was only a 9 month long release & its EOL (end of life) was July 2014. I suggest you replace it with a modern Ubuntu based distro such as the two I recommended in response #1.

perhaps the problem is in the drivers.

To fix sound issue reinstall Alsa and Pulseaudio and force reload alsa again

For that

Sudo apt-get remove --purge alsa-base pulseaudio
sudo apt-get install alsa-base pulseaudio
sudo alsa force-reload

Restart the system

Try this:

Use......sudo the terminal, then it will want your password, type it in, it will not display but keep typing,

When that is open use the L/R arrow keys to move across the bottom of the screen and the up/down arrows to adjust the volume of all channels.

Also, be sure to select your sound-card, it lists a legend of the key commands.
Selecting the correct key will open a list of soundcards, select yours from the list.

I use Linux Mint, it's based on Ubuntu and when I install Mint I have to enter alsamixer every time and crank the settings all the way up to get my sound.
