Angry having trouble with my soundcard..


I have a strange problem. when i install FC4 on my new system, I had a lot of problems. First, I couldnt run my monitor 1024*768 resolution. yeap, but i solve it. Then i had a another problem which still makes me sick. My soundcard which is onboard (SoundBlaster Live 24 bit) didnt give me any sound in sound card detection option. then i went to apps>>sound&video>>volume control then i went to edit and prefrenses, and checked everything that i saw and increased all the bars. then i got the sound. but when i try to incrase the volume from Gnome toolbar, nothing is changing. i mean sound is always same, nothing is changing..

then i try this


i saw that analog center / LFE is not working. and when i increase analog front, volume is going up. and also notice that when i increase the volume from gnome panel analog center / LFE is going up not Analog front. same thing is happening in xine and xmms. i mean the volume button is not working in both of them.

and when i run xmms and double click on of the song from playist, i got the following error if it is an error

Couldn't open audio

Please check that:
Your soundcard is configured properly
You have the correct output plugin selected
No other program is blocking the soundcard

and also when i run totem it says
Totem couldnt start
ALSA device "default" had an error.

and sometimes my computer is getting freeze. and i think it is because of soundcard.

My motherboard is MSI Neo-4 NForce 4 SLI and my soundcard is onboard, Creative Soundblaster Live 24!

I am and looking for some help..

Sound errors is all I fix recently...

Go in a console, and do these troubleshooting commands (I should add it to my signature...):
as root...


Alsamixer works (from your message)
Is XMMS output plugin set to arts (if applicable)
Are you using KDE?
Is Externel Amplifier set to unmuted (if applicable)?
