Not sure what "the mixer" is, but check to see if you are using ALSA, and more so, to see if the modules for your sound card are being loaded:
/sbin/lsmod
From the command line, as root, will show what modules are loaded, then post em up. Also, post up your /etc/modules.conf so we can see what's going on in there.

Where to get alsamixer, well I suppose there is a Fedora way to do it, I've seem posts on using yum to install packages on Fedora, but not sure if that's universal. The universal way is of course using the source, but that's not always easy. I believe alsamixer is in the alsa-utils package, and you can get that from:
http://alsa-project.org

Cool

Just curious which kernel you are running?
uname -r
will tell you

Open up a terminal and type:
alsamixergui

And hit enter. If it returns 'command not found' then try:
alsamixer

again, if you get 'command not found' then:
whereis alsamixer
if nothing, then:
locate alsamixer
And still if nothing, then you'll need to get the package alsa-utils installed, this would be something to ask your fellow Fedora folks about

Cool

Try amixer then;
# amixer set Master 100 unmute
# amixer set PCM 100 unmute
(Only if the above isn't sufficient
# amixer set Center 100 unmute
# amixer set Surround 100 unmute

Have you run the alsaconf program as root? Also make sure that you are a member of the 'audio' group.

Hi Eagle 101,

I happened to have the same kind of problem.
Try to run alsaconf as root means :
You have to open a Konsole, the "black" window in which you can type commands
Type "su" after the prompt
type your password
than type "alsaconf"
click on yes if it asks you to check your soundcard
then, as it says : Enjoy !

Did it 3 or 4 times in Mandrake 10.0. Worked perfectly well
Hope that can help you
Cheers !
