no sound at all anymore

when i first installed kde-3.1.3 on my gentoo system, I had sound for everything except dvd/divX playback.
but now, after adding a new user i don't have sound at all. not even if i log on as root.

i keep getting the followin error:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device or address)

any help will be appreciated.

ps. i tried installing the latest ALSA drivers, but it din't work.
