I have moved this to Linux Newbie. On to your problem:
which distro are you using?
what's your hardware?
what have you tried already?

And I have renamed your thread because "Help Me!" tells us nothing at all about your problem.

Have you ran alsamixer to make sure that your sound and PCM is not muted?

I had the same issue. I installed all the latest updates with yum and then a redetection of the soundcard did help. Maybe works for you also.

I really appreciate you all,but what are you telling me to update?
ls it the Fedora Core 5 or what?
If it is,what command do i use from the terminal,because FC5 does not update
normally,but from the terminal.
Thank you very much for all this,Love you all.

Code:
yum update
This updates everything - I don't know if this is really what you want to do but I cannot tell you the exact library that solved my problem.

It is like the Windows Updates =)

I had an issue on my Dell Latitude. In the BIOS there's a setting for sound giving you the options for 'half-duplex', 'full-duplex' and 'disable'. After wrestling with my sound for days, I finally got my sound recognized and no little red x over the speaker icon. I still couldn't get it to work. It wasn't until I changed it in the BIOS to 'full-duplex' that I actually was able to use it.
