As many other people in this forum I got this problem with my ASUS P4PE MB!
The on-board integrated soudcard doesn't works!!
It seems that is an impossible & too much frequent problem!!But until now the solutions seems far away...
I'm just a bit confused about the type of soundcard 'cause W2K find a Analog Devices SoundMax AC 97 but linux a different one (see below)
It seems that the ALSA drivers doesn't work but ...
These are my various message from the system:

Anyone knows a way to make this integrated audio working???
Thanx Very Much!!
you could search for posts by either MasterC or me as he was helping me trying to get my onboard sound AC97 device going a while back - and yes I have had it working but I still ended up installing a soundblaster live! 5.1 digital, which was by far the most satisfactory solution to my sound problems. Oh and I had the problem with suse 8, mandrake 8.2 and 9.0
Could it be to do with the way linux gets it's sound from the drive in the first instance i.e. the drive that has the audio cable to the sound card will be the one to use for playing music, because I understand that windows picks the sound input from the ide cables whereas linux needs an audio connection to the soundcard though I believe some sound cards can have 2 or more audio input cables from the drives (and no I forgot to check last time I had the box open - this results in me having to use my cdrw to play music, my dvd not having an audio connection at the moment, won't play music cd's)???
Using the pink connector and not the green one can be very risky. Look at some of the other threads and you will see other users who have done this have messed up their onboard audio. This too happened to me.
I have an intel onboard soundcard whitch uses AC'97. I found the correct alsa driver linked from the official intel website. You might wanna check your manufacturers website, it sure solved my problem. And then be sure to get the mixer and unmute.

The output on the back of the card goes out from the PINK connectors and not from the right one (green).
So, you must plug yr jack from the normal audio output (coloured green) into the pink one.
I don't know why under linux the output connetors is different.
Is there any way to solve this problem by software?
I use Linux and XP on my computer, and i dont wanna change plug the jack again and againd!
