For some reason, my sound doesn't work on my new machine with its
present jessie install.  It worked on my old machine(which had
jessie) and it works fine here on Windoze(I use youtube to play old
Bernie Sanders' speeches, or Mozart<g>).  So what do I have to do?  I
can't find alsa to install, and pulsesudio is already installed.

Any and all suggestions/fixes appreciated.  Please spare the
imprecations and chastisements!

Could I first suggest that you get hold of a recent version of
Knoppix? Not just to solve this problem, but you seem to be at a point
where you need a variety of help. It takes forever to boot up, but it's
worth waiting for.

Joe we are not doing advertisements for this or that distro. Either provide
an answer or do nothing please ...

thanks and regards
