Sound problems on an Acer 64bit laptop

I'm very new to Linux (installed PCLinuxOS a week ago) however with the help of this forum I've resolved a few issues. I now seem to be down to the last outstanding problem - I can't manage to get any sound on my laptop.

PCLinuxOS correctly identifies my sound card. However when I search around with various tools I'm told that the card isn't configured (SiS7012PCI audio accelerator with snd-Intel8x0 driver)

I can manage to receive audio from Skype but not send audio to Skype - using my VOIP phone but nothing on my main speakers.

I've updated the ALSA drivers but the old versio
n still loads when booting.

Any ideas where and how I can correct this problem?

There is a section in the Control Centre : Hardware : Configure ... ALSA drivers.

The command for the Control Centre is mcc. When you first install, from memory, there is an icon to launch it. You have to enter the root password.
