I've installed Red Hat Linux 7.0 on my computer.
I ran sndconfig to configure my sound card. The program recognised my sound card but when it went to play a test sound it crashed my computer. I then rebooted but while it was booting, it tried to load the sound module and then it crashed.

My sound card is a VIA something or other with an AC 97 chip (or something like that). The sound card is built in to my motherboard.

What could i do to fix this problem?

Unhappy

that sound card doesn;t seem to be supported. you might be able to get it to work with the old sound blaster drivers that are in the kernel (since they work with some clone sound blaster cards [which i assume yours is]).

it might be worth just forking out the 30 or 40 for a supported card (like one of the sound blasters [although support for the live! cards are in beta testing though])
