I'm getting no joy at all with sound in Edgy.

Case 1 is a fresh install onto empty disks, mobo is an ECS KN1 LIte with 
nforce chipset, onboard sound:

cat /proc/asound/modules
 0 snd_intel8x0

 aplay -l

but there is no sound.

Case 2: upgrade from Dapper to Edgy on a Dell Optiplex SX280:

Results are the same, no sound there either. It worked fine under Dapper.

I've googled various incidences of sound trouble under Edgy and none exactly 
fit this bill, and none of things people have done to resolve them have 
helped here. Everything looks like it should work and I'm out of 
troubleshooting ideas.

TIA for any advice,
