I lost my sound when I tried loading the manufacturers driver. So I went to the Arch wiki page and followed the steps to set up but this is what I get (Making sure the sound modules are loaded--section).
[joe@Tux-Box ~]$ modprobe snd-hda-intel

It looks like the install script wiped out all the previous modules.
I then followed the wiki link to the "Alsa Sound Card Matrix" and selectd hda-intel and ran the command below which based on this sight indicates the module is loaded.
[joe@Tux-Box ~]$ modinfo soundcore
author: Alan Cox
description: Core sound module
vermagic: 3.1.8-1-ARCH SMP preempt mod_unload modversions
So at this point I am confused and not sure what to do to correct.
Any direction would be appreciated --
--as the only solution I can think of is to rebuild the system which I don't have the time for currently.
Some more info....
