I just updated one of my fedora 23's and now I have no sound, I tried what I know, I would be really thankful if someone more experienced would write me an answer with what I can do to fix this.

Has anyone else gotten this?

My system is: Fedora 23 all updates 64 bit KDE on a new station computer with i5

EDIT: Here are lspci and lsmod

# lspci
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 05)

and

 # lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by

EDIT #2:

aplay -D hw:0 /usr/share/sounds/startup3.wav

gives the output below:(maybe someone can understand it)

ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1701:(_snd_pcm_hw_open) Invalid value for card
aplay: main:786: audio open error: No such file or directory

and same output here:

ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1701:(_snd_pcm_hw_open) Invalid value for card

what kind of soundcard and speakers are you using?

run lspci to find your audio chipset. run lsmod to see if the corresponding kernel module for that chip is loaded. run alsamixer to verify that your output is not muted, or the wrong output set (HDMI or so).

@florian I checked alsamixer and it is not muted, I don't understand the output of the other commands

I don't see the kernel module for your card listed. Expecting something like snd-hda-intel. Are you sure lsmod | grep snd does not return anything? Try sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel.

@florian Here are the commands you asked about:

# lsmod | grep snd 
# modprobe snd-hda-intel
modprobe: FATAL: Module snd-hda-intel not found in directory /lib/modules/4.2.3-300.fc23.x86_64
