Question FC4 soundcard not working


I just upgraded from FC3 to FC4 (accidentally wiped my hard drive; don't ask), and now I can't get my stereo speakers to work. It worked good with Fedora core 3.

I have two sound cards installed; one is in my motherboard and the other (the one with the speakers) is added. No matter what i select my default sound card to be in the sound card detection, it always plays out of the one in the motherboard.

Does anyone know of any fixes?
Is a better way to configure my sound?
And, where are the configuration files located?

Thanks

Sound FC4

"I just upgraded from FC3 to FC4 (accidentally wiped my hard drive; don't ask), and now I can't get my stereo speakers to work. It worked good with Fedora core 3."

did the same thing on my toshiba notebook on Friday, Im using gnome on FC4, I have my laptop running thru the stereo and the sound was shaky to say the least... in the corener of the gnome-panel there is a volume control (I guess you can add it by right clickining on the panel, and choosing add to panel, then select colume control)

double clicking on the sound control brings up a mixer panel... I chose switches, and clicked on the option External Amplifier

the sound worked 100% better (and nearly blew my ears out because i forgot to turn down the stereo)

Hope this is some help?

It works through the sound card integrated in the motherboard-- I just cant get it to work with the other sound card.

I disabled the soundcard in the motherboard (the one thet works but I don't want), so now only one is displayed. But still no sound.
