the nforce2 sound doesn't work

Here are my system informations:

I've heard someone said that the kernel-built-in driver for the sound device is good enough,
(but it seems that the built-in doesn't work)
I don't care the quality of sound, but just to work, so my problem is
"how to get my sound device work", as simple as possible?
ps. because I've bad experinces in setting up nvidia graphic card.. sad
thank you very much!

Re: the nforce2 sound doesn't work

can you tell us a little more of the circumstances of why it doesn't work? Was it working before?

Try clearing out modprobe.conf and run alsaconf.
