No sound after much updating opensuse 10.3

I installed all the latest update for opensuse 10.3 without a problem, but still didn't get even a tick from my laptop.

In Yast Control Centre for Hardware, I tried to configure the sound card - but no sound - even when I click 'test'.

I am sure I would not face this problem, unless my laptop's speaker is broken, which I doubt it. Can anyone please help?

What soundcard does the laptop have onboard? (If you don't know then check with the manufacturers support website).

You may need to use an alternative driver. (from memory I think that SuSE uses ALSA but others are available.)

Many thanks for your response! My soundcard is intel ICH 6 (AC 97), and where can one find Alsa?
