No sound on Packard Bell F7280


Completed a frugal install of Puppy 525 on my hard disk to share the ntfs windows partition.
Had ALSA run to select the soundcard as Intel 8x0 AC97 codec combo.
- lspci cofirmed this was so.

I googled the sound issue the nearest I came to a solution was using the ALSA mixer to ensure Master & PCM are not muted but possibly the intel 8x0 (7012) is an issue.

Any further information you need me to report back I can easily do say typing into urxvt.
Thanks

P.S.
I,m a newbie re Puppy Linux

I am not good at all with sound card configuration and after reading posts from others with that sound card, I am still at a loss.
The best I can do for you is to use http://wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html to search for posts that may have a solution for you.
And be prepared as there are a lot of posts pertaining to that sound card.

I have a Laptop that also had sound problems.
The correct driver was loaded and PCM and volume were maxed and still no sound.
Then I expanded the alsamixer window and found one called Speaker that was set to zero.
I cranked it up and then I had sound.
So sometimes, it is using a number of settings to get sound to work.
Also, I have learned that if you have a speaker icon on the taskbar, you have a driver already loaded.
In that case, bypass the alsa wizard and use the mixer.
I have seen cases where rerunning the wizard causes working sound to be lost.

sound issues often are resolved just by trying another variant or vers pup, retro kernel etc
