Code:
ls -l /dev/dsp*
crw------- 1 myid root 14, 3 Dec 31 11:26 /dev/dsp
Code:
$lsmod
 ~]$ /sbin/lsmod

Any idea?

I tried switching between alsa and analog modules from gui too. Nothing happens.
From terminal I checked
$alsamixer nothing is muted.

Thanks.

Since RHEL is a commercial distro, you should be looking to rudhat for commercial support. If you want free support, you should really use a free distro. That said...

make sure the correct soundcard is the default.
make sure you have the proprietary audio formats installed.
can you hear the system beeps? the startup sound?
can you play sound files that are not flash video?
