Thank you for your time

Couple of things have you tried the latest audio driver from Zenith432, "EnsoniqAudioPCI_v1.0.3d1_Common_Installer.pkg", link below:

 

http://sourceforge.net/projects/vmsvga2/files/

 

Secondly have you added a sound card in to your OS X guestOS via "Virtual Machine Settings" in VMware Workstation or Player, it is not added by default.

 

Finally check you have enabled sound under your OS X guest, select Go > Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup or see if you have a VMware VMaudio device available.

just finished all new install with SL and it works, i have sound and a good screen resolution, the sound is a bit chopy and the video playback is dreadfull, but hey its beter than nothing thank you guys for the great help.

 

EDIT: I fixed the chopiness of the audio just, changed the frequency to 48 KHZ and now its working good but in a very low intensity, isnt there a way to boost the volume?

Have a look at the following post by Zenith432 who wrote the virtual sound driver, he has a couple of VMX setting for you to try to increase the volume.

Just do the following, this works for me

 

- Turn off your Snow Leopard

- Add a sound card (with default setting) from VMWare Settings

- Turn on your SL

- Install/reinstall the driver (http://sourceforge.net/projects/vmsvga2/files/Audio/Archive/SnowLeopard/EnsoniqAudioPCI_1.0.2_for_SnowLeopard.mpkg.tar.gz/download)

- Restart your SL

- (Optional) Go to System Preferences-> Sound to set up something if you want :D
