I have sound but yet no sound


My sound card only allows one program at a time to use sound. I want mplayer to play sound in my video, but only works 10% of the time because something else is using the sound (or so i think) i did ps -e and this is wut popped up:

looks like arts may be the culprit. i could be wrong. i'm thinking these 2 could be it.

2141 ? 00:00:17 artsd
2553 ? 00:00:00 artsd


unless these times correspond w/your trying to get this working. do you have the sound server starting at login? i have had a problem w/ this. i'm learning as i try to help, so 4give me if i'm off track.
