Here are the steps you need to do to give us some vital information:

(to do the following, open a terminal and give the mentioned commands)

1. What is the output of "lspci -v" command?
2. What is the model of your sound card? Is it external or onboard?
3. What is the output of these commands ("$>" means the command prompt
$> ls -l /dev/dsp*
$> ls -l /dev/audio*
$> groups
$> dpkg -l *alsa* | grep ^ii

The last command, "groups", will show the groups to which you belong as
a user. You must belong to the "audio" group to use sound on your
computer. Give the outputs of the above commands and then let us see
what is to be done further.
