Hi,

          I have,

          1) Linux 2.6.25.5-1.1-default x86_64
          2) openSUSE 11.0 (x86_64)
          3)  AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+, speed : 2,814.43 MHz, cores : 2,
          4) Quadro FX 570

When starting suse i can hear the startup sound. however, when I play a movie file or sound file i cannot hear anything. Knowing that I am a newbie to linux, what step by step approach can help me troubleshoot this situation.

Brgds,

Do you mean you got some sound when you login to your desktop (KDE or gnome)?  But when you play a file (with which application?), you hear nothing?  Is that right?
Have you tried going into YaST and configuring (or re-configuring) the sound card?  It may be that the particular application you are using needs some configuration, or the sound card may be locked by your window manager.  Have you tried playing your sound/movie file from the command-line, does that produce any output?
Further details (including any relevant logs or screen output) would be welcome!
