Before deciding to post here, I did a lot of searching on this forum to see if I could solve this matter.
Sadly after reading:
http://www.linuxgator.org/forums/viewto ... hiba+sound
and trying these suggestions I have got no where .
I have also read
and went through the guides but none mentioned PClinuxos.
I have tried other distros but I much prefer PCLos to the others for speed and its a much nicer O/S.
This laptop is my brothers who handed it to me after breaking XP and decided that linux was a better option. Now I cannot get the sound to work so its not looking good.
When the system boots up I get no intro sound and I have tried messing around with preferences->sound and preferences->volume control

One problem I have is that the bios does not seem to have the option of turning off/on fast/quick boot and if I switch off acpi on the boot line command the system does not boot up at all.
I really would appreciate any help here on the matter.
