you installed puppy frugal on what what kind of machine. Why I ask is if you do not have a swap partition for puppy you cant use the sound card.
so you you have a swap. ok open a terminal and type alsaconf press enter.
or go into setup wizard and select sound

hmm i have tried to use alsaconf to configure the card with different drivers but i just made a lupu_save.sf2 since you mentioned you needed a swap partition so i created my lupu rebooted the system and it worked finally but after i tried to play 1 video it shut itself off all over again... i am also on a laptop.

alsaconf will find the correct driver it will be on top and that is the one to use.

hmm thank's for the reply let me try it, plus i am pretty sure i never tried the first driver on the list assuming it was default(already being used),
Edit: thanks man that got my sound up and running i feel happy thanks to you but be also mad i wasted your time by not trying the first driver thanks again if there is ever anything i can help you on just let me know(i have been building websites for a while i am okay)

No never mad been where you have been many times. Take your time a use wolf and build a slackware pup you will like that slackware pup seems to be a lot more fun for me. But using Barry Kauler (founder designer of puppy linux) wolf build is a good learning experience. remember puppy linux is a hobby operating system. and is used as tools. the lucid pup is built from wolf.

For securety reasons you should change your password because everyone knows puppy linux password. open a terminal and type passwd then enter then put in your password.
Puppy is know joke it is a serious tool for the linux repair man or a great hobby OS. There are other pupplets that are built more secure.
if you have a 64 bit CPU Fatdog 64 bit is really fast wow.
