Slackware 9 sound issue

First off let me say I am sorry for the very little information I am able to provide for this problem. Also that I have searched the forums and have not really found much to help me

Ok to the problem I installed Slack 9 on a friends laptop and everthing seemed to go smoothly but when I booted into the gui I got:

Error (mixer_applet2)
Mixer device /dev/mixer has neither volume nor PCM channels.

everything else seems to work fine just no sound. I am not sure what type of sound card he has since he has lost all documentation for his laptop I have tried the alsa drivers with no luck, If anyone can give me any advice I would really appreciate it .

Do a search for the laptop on, someone may have already solved the problem, and the command "lspci -vv" (as root) should spit out reams of info about the chips on the motherboard.
