Ubuntu 20.04 - No sound

Chris Pollock-2
Dell Optiplex 780 updated firmware and Bios Gnome desktop. Running Live
Session DVD I have sound in headphones and Settings/Sound shows
'Headphones - Build in Audio'. Under settings/sound on the desktop it
shows 'Output Device - Dummy Output', lspci shows:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JD/DO (ICH10 Family) HD
Audio Controller (rev 02)

Running alsamixer in terminal, nothing is muted.

Output of aplay -l

I've followed Liams directions here on how to fix the dummy output:


each step in order with a restart in between steps. Even to setting this
in my /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf options snd-hda-intel model=generic when
that didn't work I changed it to auto with still the same effect - dummy output.
