Good news/Bad news. The good news is that I found out mydsl still works just fine. The bad news is I just realized I have no clue what my sound card is. Is there anyway for me to find out?

I have a Toshiba Satellite 315cdt. Thanks for your help.

P.S. alsa dsl files have no alsaconf autotest as far as I'm aware.

Update I found out you can copy over any alsaconf and it will automatically detect everything for you. That is awesome. I'm sure glad I had another linux machine to get the file from.
