your dmesg is odd.
Code:
[    0.530613]   No soundcards found.


What does alsamixer show?
In the top left, what are your values for Card and Chip?
Code:
Card: HDA ATI SB
Chip: VIA VT1708S


Under the controls is a switch that can either be │OO│ for On or │MM│ for muted.
Be sure that Master, PCM and Front are │OO│ and those sliders are set to 75%
All the other controls should be │MM│

Your card can do both 44.1kHz sample rate for analogue audio and 48kHz for digital audio. It can only do one at a time.
When both analogue and digital outputs are unmuted, it operates in digital mode and the analogue oututs are silent.

For some reason, it is working now. I don't really know why, but thanks :)

dmesg still says
Code:
 No soundcards found.

That's normal. When you build sound drivers into kernel, it will print out a list of soundcard before mounting root and before sound card actually initialized, and you got NO sound cards. Because driver probe is async, mounting root means SCSI scan is completed, but others may not.
