Please do not post one question multiple times. - On a side note, consider checking the model number of the onboard sound. You can fetch a list of the PCI devices via # lspci – bubu Jun 24 '10 at 7:26

It's not a hardware problem if it works under windows. You most likely don't have an appropriate sound driver installed under Linux. I'd suggest working through the openSUSE audio troubleshooting guide.
