Putting aside the terrible problems there can be to get hda intel to work, another point to do with the sound test, is that when you press the play sound button, you may or may not hear the sound even if the soundcard is setup ok, because pretty much by default alsamixer has sound muted to save your speakers and hearing. After sound test has played the test sound, it asks if you heard it, yes, or no. So for example, alsamixer has the sound muted, and you don't hear anything, so you don't answer "yes", and IIRC if you press "no" the soundcard is disabled, and set as null, or something like that. If Yunus has done that, it is worthwhile running system-config-soundcard as you suggest. Then when you play the test sound, answer "yes" whether you heard it or not, and then run alsamixer, unmuting, raising sliders etc. For a test sound, just running speaker-test sends some pink noise to his speakers. To stop the test, press CTRL +c . My 2¢ worth of rambling on. Nigel.
