  MSI (Motherboard)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Everything else works other than sound.

What doesn't work:

Sound. No sound comes through speakers. This may not be an issue for office workers. For a home user, though, it is.

What was done to make it work:

There are no sound cards installed. I just used the default motherboard sound, which is Realtek. After a couple of hours of tinkering, was not able to get the sound to work, so uninstalled, and reinstalled XP.

Additional notes:

I researched the sound problem for quite some time before giving up. Alsamixer is not the cureall for this particular problem.
