lspci is a built-in command that shows information about your system. It's not going to make it work just by itself, but it can help in diagnosis and troubleshooting...

Just run this:-

lspci -v

And post the output here

try this
Code:
lspci -k > lspci.txt
this will create a textfile named lspci.txt with the output. You can append it as an attachment to your post or copy and past it from an editor.

do you have any output in the terminal when you execute
Code:
lspci -k
if this is the case, you should find a file named lspci.txt in your current workingdirectory after executing the command of my last post. Did you check this with the "ls" command?

Yes it did. It outputted the text to a file in your home folder called lspci.txt.

It won't show anything on your screen, because all the stuff went to that file! Open up that file and copy paste what it has in it into a new post here

Is this a virtual machine? Are you sure you have a soundcard?

mh, in all you lspci-output I cannot seem to find a hint that there is a soundcard. I'd recommend to use a live-CD for example Ubuntu or mint or something similar, boot this and look there at the output of lspci -k and save this output to a textfile.
If another distribution recognizes your hardware properly (with soundcard) you know that there is something wrong with your Arch-installation.
And if it also doesn't show a soundcard, I would suspect the soundcard is damaged.
