Unhappy soundcard problems


I have a AC97 (or something) soundcard. When I installed Red Hat 9, it detected my soundcard properly and i could hear the test sound withouth problems. But now when im running Red Hat and try to play the test sound, i can't hear it?!?!

The following audio device is detected:
Vendor: VIA Technologies
Model: VT8233 AC97 Audio Controller
Module: via82cxxx_audio

What could be wrong?

Thanks

Whoohoo!, nice.. anyway
You could try compiling acpi features, since AC'97 is an acpi card in piles and piles of laptops...
Other than that, since its a really cheap sound card.. go pick up a really cheap soundcard to replace it? Sort of your, 15$ soundblaster from the discount store will do
