Is your sound card recognized by the kernel: To test it, have a look at
the output of

% dmesg | grep pcm

If that yields nothing, you have load the pcm module:

# kldload pcm

If that didn't work, you will have to tell us more about your chipset.
Otherwise, you can now test your mixer device on the command line before
trying Gnome again:

% mixer

prints your current volume settings.
