have you tried form console? just go to conosle and try with following command.

Press Ctrl + Alt + F1 > Login as root user & passwd

At console:

type :

sndconfig [follow the instructions]

Also, paste here the details of /etc/modules.conf file. so other member can help you out.

About Network card, you can try with following location.

go to K panel > System tools > Network device control

here just try to add and configure your NIC device. also, try to add static ip address and check it.

after configure the NIC just open a console and check with 'ifconfig' commands.[it will show you details of your eth0]
