Please excuse my technical ignorance. Here is everything I know. 
My hda-intel card is also not being recognized after installing alsa-driver-unstable. The only thing that works is my usb microphone. 
I think that the program is not giving the instruction to have modules inserted on bootup. 
I have attached sample modprobe, aplay, asoundconf, modules, alsa-base.conf

$ modprobe snd-card-hda-intel
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/oss-compat, it will be ignored in a future release.
FATAL: Module snd_card_hda_intel not found.
oss-compat is already the newest version.

$ aplay -l
