sound problem in linux


whenever linux starts i have to run the command modprobe i810_audio to get sound.
under sound devices i have 2 devices
1.Ausutek multimedia audio controller
2.Asustek nforce audio
when i do details of an go to the drivers tab i get following info

for 1 i get
Driver Info #0:
Driver Status: nvsound is not active
Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe nvsound"

for 2 i get
Driver Info #0:
Driver Status: nvsound is not active
Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe nvsound"
Driver Info #1:
Driver Status: i810_audio is not active
Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe i810_audio"

If i run the modprobe i810 command and sound is back
but if i run modprobe nvsound command 1st then linux hangs.i have manually restart it.
but after running the modprobe i810_audio if i run modprobe nvsound then the driver status will change to active.Status of both drivers is active.
i want to use the nvsound drivers.

i think it is a script to detect ure sound card. when i first install mepis i had no sound until someone from this forum told me to use apt-get and install discover1 (no spaces) and then reboot. now my audio works fine.

i tried alsa conf before but it did not work for me.

am a newbie just like u, just trying to help
