First, as a normal user become root,

<root password>


and see if your sound card is detected..if so alsa will offer to configure it
Let it do so. then as root still


un-mute and adjust the sound levels...thenleave alsamixer
(Esc ends alsamixer)
$alsactl store

and leave root with
and your sound should work...
