I hate to say this, but it's anoter thread about there being no sound
Running Slackware 12.2 with 2.6.27 kernel. Brand new ASUS K50ij-RX05.
lspci tells me that my audio device is:
alsaconf agrees. I can run alsaconf just fine, and I can run alsamixer, where I get a bar labeled Master and a bar labeled PCM. Contrary to how others have described AlsaMixer according to Google, I cannot seem to change anything by pressing the 'm' key, but my left and right arrows move between the Master and PCM columns, and I can adjust the lengths of the bars between 0 and 100.

My module for sound seems to be snd_hda_intel, and I have heard that to make that work, I need to modify the file /etc/modprobe.d/sound, so I tried three different new lines for the file, each time adding the line and rebooting my system.
options snd-hda-intel model=XXX
I tried basic, ultra, and 3stack for the XXX in that line.
Normally, when I run something like Xmms, the program looks like it's playing music even though I get no sound, but each time I reboot after changing /etc/modprobe.d/sound, the program gives me an unhelpful error message, which then disappears if I change the output plugin for Xmms, though that doesn't make sound play, either.
If I run alsaconf again, /etc/modprobe.d/sound reverts back to two lines:
Any ideas on what to try next?
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
