Hi all-

I recently upgraded my Dell studio xps laptop (which shipped with 9.04) 
to 9.10. I now have no sound.  No soundcard is detected:

[ 2 ] <wee> (ron) aplay -l
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...

Dell is no help as they do not support 9.10.  Is there any work around 
for this or do the drivers need to be compiled into the kernel?

Thanks for your consideration and help.
