Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Double or cross posting in two different forums will not help solve your problem any faster. It'll only confuse you and us. Stick to this thread instead please. Also exercise a little patience, bumping your own thread will not get more attention. I reported the other thread as duplicate.
In the meantime you could try and see if this site helps you out.
Ok, that's a start already. You see why it's very important to point out what you have tried already, in as much detail as possible. Also it's very helpfull if you include any errors verbatim as you encounter them and check logs when trying something.
What hardware are you using? Type and make of soundcard, onboard or not? If onboard then what motherboard do you have? What desktop environment are you using? KDE, XFCE, ...? Those are some of the most relevant informational things you can provide in a first post when trying to get accurate help. The more information you provide, the better LQ users can get an idea of what might be wrong and help you to solve it.
Also put the output of the next command in your next post, between code tags. That's a good point to start and see if your soundcard gets detected.
Well i rebooted the system and ran alsaconf and it found the card and then ran alsamixer and it came up. Last time i tried it didnt come up so now i have sound. If anyone had the same problem i guess do a reboot like i had to. SOLVED
