Ubuntu Linux sound issue?

I recently installed Ubuntu Linux and have a duel boot with my Windows XP. I had never used Linux before and fell in LOVE. I would make a complete transition, but unfortunately, my sound card will not work. I have run my Live CD on other machines and (wouldn’t you know it) the only computer that the sound won’t work on is my Sony Vaio. I consider myself a very computer savvy person, but I am all new to Linux. So please keep the instructions “idiot-friendly”. My sound card is a Intel 82801DB-ICH4 (Alas Mixer). I have a Sony Vaio PCG-4C1L. Oh, just so everyone is aware, I have tried ajusting advanced volume control and all of the articles on the Ubuntu homepage using the search key “no sound sony vaio”.
I am running version 8.04. Also, my system is a laptop (speakers are built in)
