On board sound doesn't work

I have a Dell Optiplex GX-1 computer with Mandrake 10 installed. The on board sound on the motherboard doesn't work at all. I know the sound works in Windoze though... Has anyone with this computer gotten their on board sound to work?

you didnt say anything about your onboard sound hardware.

In windows look under control-panel - system -hardware to find out the name of the sound card it will usually be described as a PCI card.

there should be a program called sndconfig included with your distro run it to set up the sound.

or at least thats what worked for me..

Check if the volumes are up with aumix. And try using adifferent driver.
You can select a different one with haddrake.
