no sound

I am using intergrated sound on my motherboard, MSI K8N Neo4-f, and I don't have any sound. Can someone tell me what I should do?

A little more information would be helpful. The MSI website indicates that your audio device is:
• 7.1 channel audio codec RealTek ALC850, and that it is compliant with AC97 codec v2.3 specification.

What kernel are you using?
Do you have the sound module loaded?
Have you run alsaconf?

From the command line run alsaconf as root.
That should get you up and running.
Worked fine for me after a fresh install.
