  [Solved!][HP ProBook 430 G3, Conexant CX20724, Speaker, Internal]
  Underruns, dropouts or crackling sound

Status in alsa-driver package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  I have Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with kernel 3.19.0-25 installed in a HP Probook 430 G3. When I finished the installation, the sound doesn't works.
  I followed the Andy C instructions and it works. I didn't use the alsa_setup.sh script.
     -I only put this lines in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
          options snd-hda-intel single_cmd=1
          options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=1
          options snd-hda-intel model=basic

  But when I reboot the laptop (not halt or poweroff), before Ubuntu boots, a very strong noise appears. At every reboot this noise appears.
      -I corrected this problem, I just put the next line in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
           options snd-hda-intel power_save=0

  Now, I've updated the kernel to 3.19.0-47 and the strong noise appears again.
  I've tried to solve adding another option to the file:
          options snd-hda-intel power_save_controller=N
  But doesn't works....

  I've read the kernel documentation pages about ALSA but I haven't find the solution

  Has someone got an idea to resolve this issue?
  Thanks to all!
