You don't have to find anything, you were told exactly what to look at.
Read the /var/log/messages file.  You'll need to be the root user to do

e.g. su -
(type in the root password, and hit enter)
less /var/log/messages
(look through it for anything related to sound)

By the way, you don't top post on this, you write below what you're
responding to.  Nor do you post in HTML.  Keep doing both, and you find
your messages get ignored by those who can answer you best.  Don't know
how to avoid posting in HTML?  Ask, someone will say how.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
