U reinstall the alsa packages and try ,

1st check the packages installed as root by,

Code:
 rpm -qa |grep alsa
perhaps it will return the two packages
Code:
alsa-utils.x
and
Code:
alsa-lib.x
then try to remove the packages by

Code:
 rpm -e --nodeps alsa-lib
Code:
rpm -e --nodeps alsa-utils
Then install both packages through yum ,if u have or by supplying

Code:
rpm -ivh <package name>
from where the packages are..

try running alsamixer and ensure that master is not set to mute.
