Have you checked alsamixer to make sure that it's not muted?

Does your distro has gui.

Then have you checked the sounds setting in control center.

It does help if you tell us which version of Linux you're using! Each can have different tools and different problems.

Look in the menu for a configuration centre, or sound control tool. Then check that the sound is actually enabled: sometimes the volume has been set to zero.

Are these normal speakers/earphones or USB ones? If you use USB or Bluetooth sound devices, then Linux need to be told to use them rather than the built-in sound. In that case, the usual tool is pavucontrol. To run it, open a terminal emulator (in your menu) and just type that command. If it's not there, go to the package manager and ask it to install pavucontrol.

If this doesn't help, come back. We can't guarantee a job with Hilton, but we should be able to get Hiltux working.

Hi. First, try with command:

root> lspci

This command list hardware.

root> lsmod

This command list all modules of kernel. You can compare hardware with modules running.
The hardware name is seemed to kernel module's name.
If there are module names running, you can open mixer software:

root> aumix (terminal), xaumix y kmix (X).

With this commands, you can mute/unmuted the mixer, and configure it (channels, line-in, microphone, etc)

I hope this can help you.
Have a nice day.
