So Kali is a multimedia distro now. Who would have thought.

Hello and welcome to the forum

First, please read the information here. The more information we have regarding your situation, the better we can help you.

Please also note that Kali is not designed for those just starting out in Linux or to be used as a "regular" distribution (for doing such things as web browsing, emailing, word processing, etc.) It's designed for penetration testing. If this describes you, I would highly encourage you to look into installing another distribution, such as Ubuntu (or one of its derivatives,) or Mint.

Concerning the sound issue, please open a terminal and post the results of these commands...

Code:
lspci -nnk | grep -i -A7 audio
Code:
lsmod | grep snd
Code:
aplay -l
Code:
dmesg | grep -iC 3 "audio"
This will hopefully give us more information concerning your sound chip and what might be going on. Also, what is the brand and model (and model number) of your system? Did anything happen prior to it losing sound, such as installing or uninstalling software?

Regards...
