Are you sure your PCM and Master channels aren't muted? Are the speakers on and plugged into the correct holes? If you are getting a mixer interface, your problem is *probably* a sound level not set correctly, or a hardware issue (not turned on for example). Slightly less likely would be that it detected the wrong card and is loading the wrong modules, but that is far from likely since you get a nice mixer interface. Check those Mute options closely... Also check that it's not trying to send audio out over a digital interface that isn't there, it might think your soundcard is more advanced than it is!
