What the heck is all the repetition about. Your problem is incredibly easy to solve, and I'm sure googling "sound Debian" would have returned tens of thousands of correct solutions. Be advised that Debian users expect you to solve the easy stuff by yourself. This ain't Ubuntu.

probably just need to run alsamixer and turn off the mute on the main sound . I had to do that for most debian installs.
