Could the volume be turned all the way down? Or even in mute?
Look for a speaker icon on your taskbar or a mixer program that would allow you to adjust the volume.
If that fails, check if you have a driver loaded for your specific sound card (use lsmod)
and check if a driver is loaded.
Also you can try to do a search for your hardware on this site.
