Question KDE in FC2 killed sound on intel-845 Mthr Brd


hi there,
Plz Help me...
I'm a complete Linux newbie...
I installed FC2 along side WindowsXP;
on: Intel Celeron 2.0 Ghz Processor
Intel 845 Chipset motherboard
80 GB HDD

My problem is tht:-
@ the time of installation. the sound card was detected perfectly and it played the sounds perfectly...
after few weeks of working fine the sounds are lost now... actually this problem arisen when i changed the session to KDE and logged in; speakers produced a crancky burp and since then no sound... which as matter of fact works fine in windows{wat thehell;}
whenever i play anything with mplayer/xmms/realplayer... status shows as playing but no sound comes out...

My /etc/modprobe.conf contants are:
Code:
alias eth0 8139too
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd
alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off
My /sbin/lspci listing shows:-

considering XMMS is playing and not spitting up no sound device present, or anything else

ctrl+ALT +F1

login
root@localhost # alsamixer
(adjust all the volume fully down and back up, make sure PCM and MASTER don't have MM at the very top (mute))

Nothing happened...

hi car10ski
the soln u said didn't worked out...
the volume bar for PCM is dead in alsamixer i.e. nothing happens if u press up or down key for PCM,
for others like Master, aux, line-in etc the keys work perfectly but tht don't have ne effect on sound output....
non of the bars had "MM" on them except for "external"; but even removing tht didn't helped...
At First i thought the sound chip is dead but no... it plays every thing when in windows...

HELP PLZ... nebody

thanx in advance

Regards
Nitin

its quite strange to see tht, no one has yet come-out with the actual coz of this problem...
...probably there lies the solution.

Is there nobody in the whole linux community who can decipher the problem;
and may be even propose a solution to it...

thanx car10ski; but alsaconf command is not recognized by my system... which path is it situated in.
