Hi Zheck. You say soundcard, but 2 cards are showing. Would you confirm how
many soundcards you actually have? Perhaps an onboard one plus the c-media
one maybe. If 2 cards, which one do you want to get working first?
Would you post the output of the following commands please.
lsmod | grep snd
lspci -v (just the bits for the soundcard/s will do here)
Open a terminal, and as user type, alsamixer . Which should show you the
settings for the default card (card0). there may be something muted, or a
slider just needs to be pushed up. To unmute controls that are muted, use the
M key, which will toggle mute/unmute.
If you want to see alsamixer for card1, type, alsamixer -c 1, and that should
show controls for c-media one.
The ESC key will exit alsamixer. See, man alsamixer for other usefull stuff.
All the best.
