    I don't have another video card on slot, so I ran sax and it works. Now my sound card doesn't work, it's also onboard . O tied to run alsaconf but it says "bash: alsaconf: command not found" . Is there some other configuration tool ?

    Yast has a tool to detect and configure your sound card.

    You did run alsaconf as root?

    Hmm, well maybe it wasn't.
    My attitude when faced with a likely reinstall is kind of "What have I got to lose by trying to save this?"
    A lot of stuff in Suse is made of modules so maybe the sound problem can be fixed. Not positive on that part. Are you sure the sound card is physically installed properly?
    This might be a good time to try and backup any data you value. Hopefully the cd drive (or whatever you're using for backup) is accessable.

    I suppose it might be helpful to look in the system logs - just to see if more information about the sound controller installation error was reported.

    I know this is going to sound a bit petty, but for some reason I feel certain that the guy who one day uses "motherboard" in a 'Thread Titles Only' search would appreciate it if the word is spelled correctly...

    Just a thought...
