Sound Drivers not working in Ubuntu

when i started Ubuntu, the sound worked fine. then after i switched kernals to a kernal more friendly to my Intel Celeron D 325.

anywho, the sound stopped working, the volume control panel that i have says that no correct driver is found.

the laptop im on is a Toshiba Satellite A65-S1362, the sticker on the laptop says its an SRS sound system. im not sure if thats the onboard crap speakers, or the soundcard thats in the laptop.

im running Ubuntu 6.06
any help in fixing this problem will be greatly appriciated.

If you don't want to switch your kernel (again) nor recompile it yourself, your only option is to locate the driver or kernel module. If you got a driver, install it using the instructions provided with it; if you're looking for a kernel module, here's how it happens:

modprobe -l | less
# Now look for a module filename that sounds
# familiar and might suite your soundcard..
# If/when you find it, remember the modulename
# (filename without the .xx in the end). Press q
modprobe <modulename you just found>
Then simply retry if it works. Modules that you have currently loaded into your kernel can be seen via
