No sound : CA0106 , alsa and pulse audio

So what do we have here. Creative 5.1 channel CA0106 sound card is connected and not working.

What all could go wrong,

  1. your audio card itself is not detected.
  2. your audio driver loaded is not correct.
  3. pulse audio will not recognize your driver output.
  4. alsa mixer has problem recognizing the output
