Unhappy Help: why I need to alsaconf after I restart my computer

I need to alsaconf to configure my soundcard after I restart my computer, or there is no sound. It is so boring that configuring the soundcard after every restart. Could anyone tell me the way to solve it? Thanks.
The distribution which i use is Debian. Some people told me to select alsa in rcconf. I've do that, but there is no use.

If you want to set your sound perfectly (in case of 5.1) then do this one:
Configure bars with arrows, enable or disable service with "m" key.
When done ESC
#alsactl store
P.S. If you have 5.1 speaker system, be sure that LFE channels bars are all way down and [off]. LFE channel is to generate 5.1 emulation matrix on 4 speaker systems.

After running this command (alsactl store) your custom swill be stored in alsa configuration and restarted automaticly every reboot.

Thanks for your reply.
But I think this is no use. I've run the command of alsactl store while the soundcard is working. After reboot, there is no sound.

You have to first load up the alsa module for your sound card. After you do this, sound will be seem that it is muted or there is no sound. Run `alsactl restore` to load the stored settings. You can find one of the halt or shutdown scripts and add `alsactl store`. Also you can find one of the init scripts and add `alsactl restore`.
