First check if the volume isn't muted. On most distros the sound volume is set to 0 by default after instal.
I also thought that my sound is gone the first time I installed Linux but soon I realised what realy was the problem...
Anyway if that doesn't help I suggest you find the latest drivers for you soundcard (most probably from your sound-card vendor's web-site) and try to install them.

Actually volume isn't muted, when i goto system setting- sound card detection option, the window opens & following thing are written there:

" The following audio device was detected, vendor: Intel, Model: corporation 828011G (ICH7) family, module: snd-azx "

so how i can debug the problem ?
