I've had similar issues so let me see if I can troubleshoot
1. First check to make sure there isn't some mute button bein pressed. With fedora I can find a Volume control box by going to the main menu and having it be under Sound and video. I have never used SUSE so I can't say exactly where it might be.
I strongly beleive this is the problem you are having so i'd peruse the SUSE forums to see what other people have done.
2. We will have to see exactly what can play. If you have alsa (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture). We can test this by going to the terminal and typing aplay. if it says not a command, it's not there, if it spews some other error, it's there.
Go to the terminal and try to use aplay - the alsaplayer - to test the sound card.
aplay can only play .wav uncompressed audio so find a wav file on your computer, go terminal, in terminal go to the wav file's directory (using the cd command) and type
aplay -d hw;0:0 (something).wav
where you are specifying what device you want it to play from. hw;0,0 is the first (linux counting starts at zero) card and the first device on that card.
try this with hw;0,1 , hw;1,0 and hw;1,1 (note, if there is a mute on, this will not work)
hopefully one of those work and then it will be a simple matter of changing the default to
the working device
