It would help if you could tell us what you have done to get you to the point where you are, so that we get an idea of where to start.

and tried to install this: http://paste.ubuntuusers.de/raw/393727/ after downloading the package, this is where i totally ruined my sound....
and after fixing it i tried other diofferent things buty alot of threads are talking about the 5.1 and 7.1 speakers and channels, and i guess they differ from the 4.1, right? i dunno

You do realize that the drivrs you installed are available in the rpeositories. Open System-->Administration-->Synaptic package Manager and search for alsa-base, this includes the needed drivers.
In a Applications-->Accessories-->Terminal type:
sudo lshw -C multimedia
and paste the output in your next post. The above information will help us solve your problem.

Double-click the speaker icon in the top panel and make sure all the controls are turned right up. Also go to System-->Preference-->Sound, and make sure all the outputs are set to autodetect.

done, but what mixer do i choose?
i chose HDA Intel (Alsa mixer), right?
anyways it didn't do anything
January 22nd, 2009, 12:50 AM
yeah i guess it's the right one

So are you saying your sound now works?
January 23rd, 2009, 03:30 AM
the sound works fine from the beginning but the thing is with the rear speakers, they r not working at all....
i only hear them click at the booting and shutting down the computer, except that nothing...
January 23rd, 2009, 12:41 PM

i never knew this will be a a hard difficult problem like it is right now

Can you post a screenshot of what you see when you click on System-->Preferences-->Sound?
January 29th, 2009, 12:46 AM
here it is, but note that i tried to change the device several times and nothing changed :s

It looks like your outputs are detected properly, so it is just a matter of getting the volume turned up. Strangely I get two different result from alsamixer and gnome-aslamixer, see screenshot. I would suggest using gnome-alsmixer to see if you can turn the other outputs up.

here's how it looks for me

I noticed you have side and lfe turned down, maybe you should turn them up.
