Linux not detecting my soundcard!

Any suggestions as to why this is, and how I can over come it?

Step by steps are best for me, since I am a total newbie.

Also, are there any soundcards out there that I can just swap out my current one with and basically have linux recognise it without installing anything?

Running ubuntu and my card is a PCI sound/modem by riptide.

Already tried that. I keep getting messages no matter what I download telling me that I dont have a C compiler. I am currently downloading the GCC compiler, but still, this is a HUGE hastle. especially since I am running on hunches.
