No Sound


Hi

I've got a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy sound card but not sound coming out from the speakers. I've tried plugging the speakers into all the ports, the speakers are definitely turned on and all the volumes turned up. If I plug the speakers into the microphone port (red) then I can hear very quiet but highly distorted sound from the speakers. I'm running Linux Mint Debian Edition with Cinnamon.

lspci shows this:

you have 2 audio controllers
Code:
01:09.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Audigy (rev 04)
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)
You can try to change your sound output in audio settings, or you can disable integrated sound card in the BIOS.

Also, when the computer starts up the speaks make a bit of a pop sound and then there is a [failed] (I think it says that anyway, difficult to read due to the speed it goes up at). Is there a way of reading what it says at boot? It might provide a clue? :/

Fixed, knew it'd be easy when I had a clue what to do! (Takes me longer than most! )

In a terminal -> alsamixer -> Find "Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack" then press "m". Proceed to jump out your skin as your music proceeds to blast out at full volume.
