You seem to have a different problem than the originator of this thread.
It looks like the drivers for your sound card have not been loaded. This
can have a number of reasons. To help you further, we need to know which
version of Debian you are using and the exact model of your sound card.
Please post the output of the following two commands:
lspci | egrep -i 'audio|multimedia'
