    You need to make sure the alsamixer isn't on mute. Open your sound mixer and make sure nothing is muted. You can also run alsamixer or amixer to make sure nothing is muted. If this doesn't work see the next step.

    You need to run:

    Code:
    alsaconf
    This will try and find a sound device to use.


    If this doen't work post the output of alsaconf. Alot can be found out from this. Also post the 'uname -a' and 'lspci'.

    Hi!!

    Thanks! I am not sure, but I think that the point it was to use that command:
    to save the mixer configuration...

    #alsactl store

    The sound itś ok right now!
