Hi, I'm a relative newbie to Linux but I've gotten Red Hat Linux 7.3 installed on my Compaq Presario 1700T. It is working fine as far as video is concerned, but my sound card does not seem to work. Presario 1700T has a Intel i810 AC97 sound output, and according to these pages:
the sound card works right out of the box (but it doesn't for me!!)
From my Hardware Browser under Gnome, the card is recognized. I also tested it with sndconfig but there was no sound coming out during the test sound phase. I even tried command "aumix" and tweaked with the volume, but still, no sound. This is so odd. Anyone have any insights???
