  PCI/internal sound card seems to be detected, but is not available

Status in alsa-driver package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In my PC is a VT8237A/VT8251 HDA Controller from VIA Technologies, Inc.
  When I open the sound preferences, I only see a dummy output.
  I tried a lot of commands to figure out the pronblem. It seems that the PCI sound controller is found.
  Somehow it is not recognized as an audio device.
