gnome audio error: "Sorry, no mixer elements and/or devices found"

Any assistance is greatly appreciated! Sound was working on stock Fedora Core 3 install, after up2date update no sound. I am using thinkpad x40, 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3.

system-config-soundcard output:
Vendor: Intel
Model: Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller
Module: snd-intel8x0

I have these alsa packages installed:

I adjust volume control moving slide to + side via volume control icon and slide automatically moves to -. I go to applications -> Sound & Video -> Volume Control and get message "Sorry, no mixer elements and/or devices found"

Any ideas? Please let me know if additional information is needed.

I am taking a wild shot here:

1. modprobe snd_intel8x0 to make sure it is loaded
2. rc-update add /etc/init.d/alsasound default
3. see if you have a menu item called multimedia selector or something similar. Pick the one that says ALSA.
