Alsa not functioning with nforce5 board

I just purchased a new AM2 board (m2n-sli) and am yet to get any functioning sound.

when i attempt to start alsa I get:

* Loading ALSA modules ...
* Loading: snd-card-0 ... [ ok ]
* Loading: snd-seq ... [ ok ]
* ERROR: Failed to load necessary drivers
[ ok ]
* Restoring Mixer Levels ...

here is my sound device information:

00:06.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP55 High Definition Audio (rev a2)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
