sound card and graphics card not recognized by debian ...


I am new to linux, i would like my sound card to be recognized...
When i use some software where sound is required, an alert box informs me the file representing the soundcard dosn't exist.

my sound system is :
# fabricant : Système son Toshiba Bass Enhanced et SRS TruSurround XT™
# supported audio format : 16-bit stereo
# speakers : stéréo speakers Harman/Kardon
# microphone : External
# model : Realtec ALC 250
# max frequency : 48 kHz
# full duplex support : yes
# direct sound : yes
# direct 3D sound : yes
# volume spin : yes

my graphic system is :
# fabricant : ATI
# model : MOBILITY™ RADEON™ 9700
# video memory : 128 Mo
# memory type : DDR RAM
# bus frequency : 400 MHz
# connected bus : AGP 8x
i get strange lags when using more sophisticated themes with gnome or kde... i beleive it's using my graphics card as SVGA card and not using it to it's full capacities ?

it's running on a toshiba P30-135 laptop.

thank you in advance for your help.

The Linux on Laptops site has several P-30 models listed. You might begin there.
