did you try alsamixer?

open a consol and at the command prompt type

$ alsamixer

looks like you may have already tried this

+1 SteveNorman's suggestion.

Also, try unmuting all channels (helps in some cases), or maybe muting the ones to the far right (on my laptop for example, the sound is inaudible as well unless I mute the "external amplifier" channel).

Good luck :KS
