My lucid lynx always played sound but after starting up today it s not playing sound anymore.

when i go to "sound preferences" and then "hardware" it shows no devices at all.

in the terminal i typed in:

sudo aplay -l
(and it returned a list with sound devices)

though when i type in
alsamixer
(in the terminal, nothing happens)

does that mean i need to reinstall alsamixer? if so how?
other suggestions? Thanks.

What did you do before this happened?

Click on Fix your sound! in my sig.
That should fix it.
Also check if OSS supports your soundcard.
Check if your soundcard even works!
