Can you tell us anything at all about your PC itself? If not, can you post up here the output from opening up a terminal and typing:
/sbin/lspci

If you highlight and middle click, it's the 'copy and paste' feature of your mouse. If the sound card detection program (I think it's called something like soundcard-config) is coming back with no soundcard detected, it raises the question of what soundcard you have in your box, and how is it attached (is it onboard, PCI, USB, or old-school ISA, or even something else like an AMR)?

Welcome to LQ :)

Cool

Sound Card Configuration
 
It's sort of the blind leading the blind, but here goes:
The program is named sndconfig. It is a Red Hat program, but I have used it on Debian distributions. It was a life-saver on a couple of occasions. Here's what I got when I Googled "sndconfig"

http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/how...ndconfig.shtml

Try running sndconfig and see if it a) runs and b) tells you anything useful.

I think you are missing a driver, and sndconfig can help with that. I know that I had many problems with sound until Ubuntu came along, and then they just all went away. I couldn't tell you how my sound card is configured now to save my soul.

Good Luck, and come back if we haven't helped yet.

Can you post up what you get from:
/sbin/lspci

Nothing on google turns up much about your motherboard. Can you also post up what you get from typing:
Code:

uname -a
and
Code:

lsmod
It seems odd that your onboard soundcard wouldn't be detected, the above 2 commands will help us see what devices exist, the kernel version, and the currently loaded modules.

Cool
