I am sorry for that - at least you have an up to date system (ouch).

Perhaps this might help you better

and here:

I tried on my computer (not your soundcard):
- Delete in yast all soundcards. In KDE should automatically arise some 
kind of messages
like "devices are deleted should I remove..".I said yes - remove
- restart
- result: no sound at all

- let the yast autoconfigure your sound card (add / change)
- once again KDE should give some messages about devices; I said "no - 
not remove"
- restart
- everything worked like before.

A litlle bit of try and error ...
