Before we can help...

Are you using alsa?

You would get more of a response if you were more specific. What is your linux distribution and what happened exactly. What did you do to try to fix the problem as recommended after a google search? See this and post again.

Im not sure I can but when I try to test it(the audio) gives me this mesage
gconfaudiosrc ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink profile=chat: Could not get/set settings from/on resource.
I don't think it is registering the drivers for the sound card couse when I try to look at the drivers it ether does not do any thing or gives me an error mesage.
as to what I did to try to fix(that messed it up) I'm not sure.
I think I need to download new sound drivers but i'm not sure how or if thats even the right step.

please help and if you have any questions couse you need more info please ask them in as dumbed down terms as posibal I am very new to linux.

It seems you are using gnome and Ubuntu 8.10? open Terminal and type this:
Code:
uname -a
. this will give us kernel version and perhaps your distro. We also need output of lspci, lsmod and modinfo soundcore. type them at terminal using sudo, e.g.
Code:
sudo lspci
and post the output here.

Ok. it should be written--sorry for uppercase--LSMOD, LSPCI, and MODINFO. You are using snd-hda-intel and the kernel has recognized your soundcard. But it needs some configuration. do this by typing at prompt: sudo alsaconf.

The problem seems more complicated than i thought. LSMOD did not show the modules used but kernel (MODINFO SOUNDCORE)and LSPCI has recognized. it is the module problem. You can try
Code:
modprobe snd
or
Code:
modprobe snd_hda_intel
.

If not working read http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Main_Page. Intel HD Audio is so complicated to setup you also need editing alsa-base under /etc/modprobe.d with options snd-hda-intel model=auto. This works for me although I have modprobe.conf instead.
