I am also running the VT8233 intereated sound on an MSI Neo Motherboard.
I don't have any Idea what a module is... So I am quite stuck.
I dont have the first idea in what to do to get the drivers installed, or where to find them, I am running Linux Mandrake 9.1.
Please help me! I dont want to go back to windows!
First, this thread is really over, because he now has sound.
Second, you don't want to "hijack" someone else's thread.
That means you interrupt their posts to ask a question about
your problem. Sort of like picking up a phone extension and
interrupting the caller's conversation to ask a question of the
person helping them about your problem. You should start
your own thread about your problem.
Third, since you're running Mandrake, you'll find that they do
things quite differently from other distributions. You would do
better to search LQ's Mandrake forum for answers.
Fourth, most of us use ALSA for sound. Go to ALSA's website
download the first three files. Then lookup your soundcard and
browse to the directions for it. Follow them, and when you've
finished the instruction to "modprobe <your_card's_modules>"
then you should run, in a terminal as a normal user "alsamixer"
and unmute your channels with the m key, turn up the volume,
and then ESC to exit. Then in a terminal, as root, run "alsactl store"
and that will save your settings.
If you will post the output of "lspci" run from a terminal as root
I'll give you some specific links with instructions for your specific
