In the command line:

Code:
lscpi
or look at the menu to find something like the "hardware configuration" or similar (don't remember how it was called in GNOME)

You cannot restart OSS This is a kernel module, not a sound daemon.
You can check what is using your sound card:

lsof /dev/dsp
lsof /dev/mixer

(or similar device that looks like soundcard -- it's different in many distros)

and then kill that program.

Thanks man, I had a program (Teamspeak) that was using /dev/dsp, and whenever i was pressing the key to speak i was only able to hear a loud noise. Everything else was working, except that program. Thanks again
