you installed puppy frugal on what what kind of machine. Why I ask is if you do not have a swap partition for puppy you cant use the sound card.
so you you have a swap. ok open a terminal and type alsaconf press enter.
or go into setup wizard and select sound

hmm i have tried to use alsaconf to configure the card with different drivers but i just made a lupu_save.sf2 since you mentioned you needed a swap partition so i created my lupu rebooted the system and it worked finally but after i tried to play 1 video it shut itself off all over again... i am also on a laptop.

alsaconf will find the correct driver it will be on top and that is the one to use.

No never mad been where you have been many times. Take your time a use wolf and build a slackware pup you will like that slackware pup seems to be a lot more fun for me. But using Barry Kauler (founder designer of puppy linux) wolf build is a good learning experience. remember puppy linux is a hobby operating system. and is used as tools. the lucid pup is built from wolf.

For securety reasons you should change your password because everyone knows puppy linux password. open a terminal and type passwd then enter then put in your password.
Puppy is know joke it is a serious tool for the linux repair man or a great hobby OS. There are other pupplets that are built more secure.
if you have a 64 bit CPU Fatdog 64 bit is really fast wow.
