On Mandriva 2010.0:
in /etc/modprobe.d/ add a file named alsa-base
Edit the file, insert the following line:

options snd-hda-intel model=3stack

This worked for me after reboot.

No audio device ....on my xp C-media ac97 audio device. This device can not start( code 10) What I need to do get back my sound.

It usually means that you don't have exact driver installed. But sometimes it's a problem with a Plug&Play Enumerator. I solved this problem several times. First try to install exact driver for your device from cd or website of your motherboard. If after installation of a new driver you have the same issue you may try this:
1. Chek if PnP SW Enumerator is installed on your machine (Device Manager / System devices) - should be listed there!
2. If it is not there then we will probably solve it!
3. Locate "machine.inf" on your OS, copy it somewhere and modify it (find "ExcludeFromSelect=*" and remove the line or simply exclude it from processing by adding a ";" at the beginning)
4. Check the "machine.inf" file for location where SWENUM should be located (mine was reading: SWENUM.CoInstallers.CopyFiles = 11 ; %windir%\System32)
5. Find "swenum.sys" file on your XP installation CD (mine was in DRIVER.CAB) and copy it to the proper location (I am not sure if it is necessary but worked for me)
6. Go to Control Panel /Ad HW and follow the wizard towards manual selection of device to be added
7. Select Add System device
8. Select Have disk
9. Navigate to changed machine.inf
10. from the list select standard devices (in the left list) and "Plug and Play Software Enumerator" in the right list
11. Finish the installation
If it stil does not work reinstall the audio adapters' drivers. It should work now.
And also if you have any Linux liveCd you can boot from it . Linux loads it's sound drivers and after when you boot Windows it usually solves your sound problem ( I resolved this with Mandriva One Live CD).
Good luck!

Sound driver needed

you have installed a pirated software, you must buy a new original software like windows xp services pack 3. and don't change your operating system into windows 7 that is only a beta. do you know what is beta? beta is just for testing they will give you the o.s. free but it will be expired on August 2009

HP 6730b Laptop Pardus Linux and no sound

I had no sound in my Pardus first. I went in the settings of the Kmix symbol/speaker down at the meny list and changed the main channel from "Front" to "Master Front"
Then I restarted the pc and it was ok. But you must adjust the volume, it propably is settled on 0 % first.

In my other PC it was not necessary to do that. So it effect only some computers with no or low sound.

Lose sound on my Toshiba laptop

you did the right thing by going to control panel and opening the sounds and audio devices tab. The fact that you said that everything is dulled out or frozen leads me to beleive that it's the sound driver. Sometimes they get damaged from third party software. So go to my computer, C: drive, open the windows folder. Now click on a folder that says drivers. Inside that folder you should have a file or folder that has your sound driver to install. That's the easy way.

#2 also easy. Go to support and downloads type in your make and model and you should get a list of your drivers. select the audio driver and download it and install. Sounds easy right!!

#3. Not that easy. right click on my computer, go down to properties and then click on the hardware tab. Now click on device manager. Here is a list of all the hardware in your computer. If it has a yellow exclamation mark next to it, then windows does not recognize it! So look for sound video game controllers or multimedia in the list. This is where the drivers for all of your sound is. Click the + sign next to them. This should give you a list of audio drivers if present. If you see a yellow question mark next to them then you must reinstall your drivers by right clicking on the question mark and choosing to update driver. this should bring you to the hardware update wizard. Select not this time and then next. now choose install the software automatically and then click next. If windows has a driver for your sound card stored internally it will now reinstall it Hope I helped you out somewhere.

If none of the above solutions work then it might be a hardware issue. It also might be disabled in the bios. Good luck
