This is what I posted recently (thread "Next steps to diagnose missing
sound?").  My Dell XPS 1710 worked fine until about a week or two ago.
I see the sound card using lspci:

    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High
    Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)

but I'm seeing the error

    ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1207:(_snd_pcm_hw_open) Invalid value for card

in the log file scsrun.log generated by the Soundcard Detection applet.

Also, in ~/.xsession-errors I'm seeing:
    ** (gnome-session:2890): WARNING **: Could not start esd: Failed to
    execute child process "/usr/bin/esd" (No such file or directory)

    ** (gnome-session:2890): WARNING **: Failed to start sound.

I run "yum whatprovides esd" and I get nothing.  It's the esound daemon,
but why I need it and where it comes from is, as of now, TBD.  Why do I
need this and when did I start needing it is also TBD.  I have
esd-config, but no esd!
