sound card problem with FC2

I am using FC2 and having sound card problem.

I selected "soundcard detect" in system setting menu. A pop window appears and display:

The following audio device was detected.

Vendor: Creative Labs
Model: [SB Live! Value] EMU10k1X
Module: snd-emu10k1

I believe it is correct as my pc is installed WinXP also, and the sound card works with above info. I press "Play test sound" and didn't hear anything. My PC is Dell Optiplex GX270.

Any suggestion how to figure out the problem? Thanks ahead.

First, you may want to check aumix, alsamixer or kmix(just go to the terminal and type kmix, or any of the others), there you must check that it isnīt muted(alsamixer and aumix, press m for mute/unmute), also play a little with the controls,(PCM must be up), in my case for example "VIA DXS, must be all the way up"
Hope this helps,
