Sound not working in linux mint

I just installed linux mint on my old desktop and for some reason the sound isn't working. I am using the on-board HDMI. I updated all the drivers that were suggested but it's still not working. Everything else is great except that. If I can't get it working I am going with Ubuntu.

I am using an asrock z77 extreme 4 motherboard.

head phones work?
Is the correct sound card selected for the app?
