this is not exactly what i requested.
is this the only sound card in your machine? it's actually a graphics card, that's capable of producing sound?
and it's from the stone ages! 2005 or so.
and what has realtek got to do with anything? which realtek driver did you download, and which guide did you use to try to install it? links, hard info, no paraphrasing, please.

driver source : http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downlo ... Down=false
Image
_______________
this him Installation instuctions:
Code: Select all
This Source Code is from http://www.alsa-project.org.
For driver installation, please follow below steps.

Automatic install:
execute

  ./install

Manual install:
Step 1. unzip source code
        tar xfvj alsa-driver-1.0.xx.tar.bz2

Step 2. Turn on sound support (soundcore module, default turn on)

Step 3. Complied source code
   a. cd alsa-driver-1.0.xx
   b. ./configure
   c. make
   d. make install
   e. ./snddevices

Step 4. Edit your /etc/modules.conf or conf.modules depending on the distribution
    (Please refer to the attached modules.conf)
   
        snd-xxxx is the card ID.

   -- Azalia controller --ALC880 ALC882 ALC260 ALC262 ALC883 ALC885 ALC888
      --- Intel ICH6 ICH7 ---------
               snd-hda-intel
           --- ATI chipset -----
          snd-atiixp

        -- AC97 controller --ALC655 ALC650 ALC250 ALC255
           --- Intel ICH6 ICH7 , SiS 7012 and NVidia----------
               snd-intel8x0
           --- Via8233 Via686a  -------------------------------   
          snd-via82xx
           --- ATI Chipset  -------------------------------
          snd-atiixp

        Copy and paste this to the bottom of your /etc/modules.conf or /etc/modprobe.conf file.
   # ALSA portion
          alias char-major-116 snd
          alias snd-card-0 snd-xxxx     
        # OSS/Free portion
          alias char-major-14 soundcore
          alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
        # card #1
          alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
          alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
          alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
          alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
          alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

Step 5. reboot your machine

Step 6. Use the alsamixer the disable mute (All audio line default is mute)
        *Must to compile and to install the ALSA library and utility. (Use automatic install is already install)
        excute alsamixer

Note:    1. The most detail information, can refer the alsa-kernel/Documenttation/ALSA-Configuration.txt in the azx-021705.tar.bz2.
   2. Kernel Version must be 2.2.14 or later.
   3. All mixer channels are muted by default. You must use a native
      or OSS mixer program to unmute appropriate channels.
   4. If can not compile the source code, try to rename the /usr/src/linux-2.x -> /usr/src/linux.
   5. The driver added to support the SPDIF functoin.    
   6. a. You can download the alsa-lib-1.0.9 and alsa-utils-1.0.9a form the http://www.alsa-project.org, then unzip and install them.
      b. Suggest use "alsamixer" to control mixer function.
      c. Used "alsaconf" can autodetect which drive you need to install (step 4).    
        7. SUSE Distribution must install the ncurses package.

Sorry but you're barking up the wrong tree. nForce3 does not have any Realtek chips so does not need any Realtek drivers. Your lspci shows the correct driver snd_intel8x0 is already loaded. Your sound issue is somewhere else probably that you don't have the volumes turned up. Check in PulseAudio Volume Control.

@debiman nForce3 is a motherboard chipset, nothing to do with graphics. I had an nForce2 based system back in ancient history days and it worked well.

well since op doesn't provide coherent information, i looked it up and that's what came up.
i guess the year is still right though.

yes, it seems op is barking up the wrong tree (and in the wrong forest), and the sound problems are probably just muted channels or some such.

difficult to say anything, the info provided is confusing.

Please install inxi and give us the result in a terminal of
Code: Select all
inxi -F


in a code box. You should be able to copypaste the text into the post here.

Otherwise we have no idea of your hardware.

AlBel, i put CODE tags aroujnd your cosde, i think it's more readable that way, please also do it that way in future.

however, since the kernel module loaded & is being used, i maintain you simply have a problem setting up alsa mixer channels, so please do and provide the output the previous poster requested.
