You probably need to unmute on menu bar.

Did you check your installation media for errors before using it... !

Have you tried another live distro to see if it can detect your hardware and have sound.

fed 11

dear x,
fed 11 is no longer supported (neither is 12, tell me about it!) so there is no yum update possible. A suggestion would be check your sound card, using another hard drive/partition, and see if fed 14 supports that; if so, download, burn and install.
