alsa ubuntu dapper ich5 crashes repeatly oss too


Did an install quite awhile ago and had problems with sound I think before and after updates did not look at all updates.

Anyway, I use any media player and select between oss and alsa and both end up crashing. I would really like to use alsa as I believe Dapper Ubuntu uses it as default.

This is what I have done so far

cjae@cjae-desktop:~$ lsmod | grep snd
snd_intel8x0 35772 5
snd_ac97_codec 100224 1 snd_intel8x0
snd_ac97_bus 2400 1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_pcm_oss 56448 0
snd_mixer_oss 20544 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 96708 4 snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss
snd_timer 26884 2 snd_pcm
snd 60004 14 snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_timer
soundcore 10784 1 snd
snd_page_alloc 11304 2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm
cjae@cjae-desktop:~$ lspci | grep audio
0000:00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
cjae@cjae-desktop:~$ /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start

The last comand made it work again for like 5 min and then quit again

I believe it does this for all types of sound
is the kernel I have as it is a p4ht

I have not messed with the kernel at all

I do not know much about sound in linux so a detailed response would be very helpful.

All I know for sure is that it box worked exceptionally well with this distro before

I should probably add that it might have happened when I install KDE. I have both environments
