checkbox-gtk will launch the System Testing, which can also be found in System > Administration.

The right command is lshw. It will give you a detailed list of your hardware as it is detected by Linux.

However if you want help with your soundcard, better to post detailed information on your hardware and system, and what is the exact problem.
