You have to tell us more facts.
The minimum is exactly which Mint you have - which version and which edition (main or any of the CEs)
We also need to know a bit about all your hardware.
Run " lspci " in a terminal and post here (to avoid misunderstanding - the first character is a minor L and you copy by marking with the mouse and then right click)
Some wifi and possibly built in sound can be connected to USB even if they are internal - if you suspect you have one of these run " lsusb " in a terminal.
Also tell us if this is using mint4win or not, quite important

00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)

This means that it is, or is compatible with at least, Intel HDA
Solutions for Intel HDA works so lets start with the one that solves most problems with it

You have to change model=xxx to what ever you have or auto

00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)

04:07.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy

Note the creative labs SB audigy is the actual sound on this system as the nvidia port died. I have marked it as disabled in the bias. Now when I go online to a site that uses java I have no sound at all from java but background noised of the pc comethru fine, ie beeps ect, I go to sound and can test audio fine.

Sorry I missed that for some reason - maybe too many posts to answer :)
Search the forum for Audigy there is a lot of info
This may possibly help you
