In this article I will give you a temporary fix for the no sound problem, after upgrading from Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal to Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail.

It should be a better solution, but this is what I have done for fixing my sound on Ubuntu 13.04:

Reinstalling alsa-base and pulseaudio

Remove alsa-base and pulseaudio:

$ sudo apt-get remove --purge alsa-base pulseaudio indicator-sound

Reinstall alsa-base and pulseaudio:

$ sudo apt-get install alsa-base pulseaudio indicator-sound

Force them to load:

$ sudo alsa force-reload
