Sorry I failed to include that I am running from a Dell Inspiron 530S desktop with Win 7 and multiple Linux distros installed on sda and sdb (which is a Seagate external hd). Following your advice I setup 'alsaconf' but experienced no change. I have PCLinuxOS Enlightenment installed and have had no sound problems with it or any other distros. Thank you for your help.
Problem solved. I also have Full Monty 2011.09 KDE installed and since sound worked fine there, I copied it's '/etc/modprobe.conf' file, printed it and made changes to subject 2011.6 KDE and it worked. Here is what it looks like now:
[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/modprobe.confThanks for your help.
install scsi_hostadapter /sbin/modprobe ata_piix; /sbin/modprobe ahci; /bin/true
install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe ehci_hcd; /sbin/modprobe uhci_hcd; /bin/true
alias eth0 e1000e
alias sound-slot-0 snd_hda_intel
alias pci:v00008086d000010C0sv00001028sd0000020Dbc02sc00i00 e1000e
Even though this issue is solved I noticed that the final configuration is the same as it was before I altered it. So the solution was probably running ALSA, as root, which wasn't something I'd ever done before on previous PCLinuxOS KDE installations. Since I'd already altered '/etc/modprobe.conf' before I ran ALSA I didn't have any video sounds until I restored '/etc/modprobe.conf' to it's original configuration. I have never had to run ALSA in any previous PCLinuxOS installations. Should it always be run when having sound issues?
