will need more info to suggest an exact solution:

what soundcard do you use?

Did u try sndconfig?
if not log in as root and type 'sndconfig' and follow through the steps.

Linux should have an automatic harware detection service (kudzu) you can type
"service kudzu status" and see if it has run.

It is a good idea to always run it at the start up.

You can also try removing your sound card -> boot -> put back your sound card ->boot again to see if kudzu is working well
