How to fix: No sound in Linux Mint 13 Maya

http://www.linuxandlife.com – I just downloaded and installed Linux Mint 13 Maya ( the MATE edition) today and I think I really like it. However, one problem occured that when I tried to play some music with Banshee, there was no sound at all. ( Although the login sound still worked) I check the sound preferences and found that due to some reason, Linux Mint picked the wrong sound output hardware in my laptop ( a Sony vaio E series). It should be the "Built-in Audio Analog Stereo" option ( the first one that got highlighted) instead of the HDMI option. To make the sound work again, you just need to select the first op (Distributions)
