What does 'I am getting sound' mean?  Sound applications work? Random 
noises occur?

What 'sound settings' are showing that HDA Intel is not available?

Try aplay -vv -D plughw:0,0 some.wav

Does it play?  If it does, alsa is working and your problem is in 
configuration only.

Do aplay - L to be sure that your card is card0.  The default card is 
card0, and if
there isn't a card0, pulse might get confused.

I can't help you with pulse, perhaps someone here more knowledeable can 
help you,
or you can go to http://www.pulseaudio.org and ask there.
