No audio on Dell laptops with ubuntu gutsy 7.10

I had this exact same problem with a Dell Latitude D531 and a Dell Precision M4300. With a fresh install they both reported not having audio drivers, but they could see the audio card in lspci.

sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-generic

reboot

Sound is working!
