Mobility IGP 340M on a presario2500 here. I have the same problem but
since I don't use the laptop for heavy gaming and such haven't
bothered to much about it. This might be helpful:

do an 'lspci' and see what your sound card is. Mine is ALi M5451 PCI.
It worked well under OSS and now it works even better under ALSA and
the FC2 kernel since it has direct support for it! So first find out
what your card is.

Have you done an upgrade or is this the first linux installation? If
the former make sure you clean up your /etc/modprobe.conf from OSS
remnands.
