Unhappy Sound playback lost suddenly in Suse 10.2 after configuring Beryl in the startup


Im a newbie in Linux and installed Suse 10.2 in my Compaq Presario V3000z laptop recently. I dual boot it with Vista. I installed ALSA 1.0.14 rc3 drivers yesterday and they all worked fine. Today, I installed Beryl and configured it to load on startup. Suddenly, the sound playback stopped.I have checked the ALSA mixer and all the volume levels are non-zero. Theres no muting on too. Checked in Vista and everything works fine. Reinstalled the ALSA drivers and that didnt solve the problem too. Reset the sound card configuration in Yast and that didn't work too. Could somebody please help me in this regard ?
