Just to be sure try this:
Then if nothing is found, post /etc/asound.conf
That said, if this is a new install, reinstall it. I average 3 installs to
get one system working correctly usually because I have made some mistake
and thought I could back up and correct it. My advice is if you skip a step
in the install or discover your mistake, start over.
