    You're going to need to give us more information than that. What kind of sound card do you have? Are you having issues with sound in anything other than Doom 3? What issues are you having specifically: i.e. no sound, garbled sound, etc? What error messages (if any) show up when you launch Doom 3 from the command line?

    I have Realtek ALC850 AC'97 and I'm not getting any sound at all in doom3 but it worked with all my other stuff like music and web.

    Weird thing I started it to check for errors and the sound was on but it locked up.And when I exited and started again there was no sound.

    Id's games have issues with AC'97 sound, in my experience. You might try turning off any other sound daemons (such as artsd or esd) and launching the game again.
