    Try running the following from the command line for a listing of pci devices present:

    Code:
    lspci -v

    sound card detected

    when you are booting up, you should see if the sound card was detected

    You can refine the output by doing
    Code:
    #lspci -v | egrep -i "audio | multimedia"

    I'm not sure why that didn't work. Try it like this:

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -v
