Laptop w/ out sound card???

I recently bought a Compaq presario 1275 from a friend. I've had Redhat8 and Mandrake 9.1 loaded on it but neither recognise that a sound card is present. My friend was not computer saavy and I am 99% sure he would not have wanted/been able to take the sound card out. Hell, I don't even know how a laptop sound card can be removed.

Compaq wouldn't have shipped a computer without this would they? How can I check? Thanks!

try as root:
less /proc/pci
And see if you see something sound card related in the output
