Slackware sound issues

I configured my sound via Alsa and was fine for the longest time.
A week ago we had a quick power outage and my laptop shut down.
(I know laptops arent supposed to do this, but mine does)
Now I have no sound
On startup I get this.

Loading Alsa Kernal Module
Modprobe: Can't locate module snd-es1938

Well, if the module got physically lost you'll need
to rebuild it. Check whether it's present or not.

locate snd-es1938

Meaning they can subsist on battery power. I'm assuming his battery is broken in some respect so that it needs to be plugged into the wall to power on/stay on.
