I recently installed Ubuntu 9.04 in my latest compaq CQ40-270TU laptop with vista as the alternate boot. When I try to play any music files my laptop speakers produce no sound at all. Even the boot time sound of Ubuntu is muted.

How can I overcome this ?

While executing Part A, Step 5 the pulseaudio volumecontrol applet shows only one entry in the Ouput Devices tab. And that is 'Null Ouput'. No other devices are listed.
