Question Audio not working in Ubuntu 8.10

I was using Ubuntu 8.10. A week before, suddenly my audio stopped working. Audio files are playing, but i couldn't hear the sound.
I'm having windows xp as my 2nd OS. I've no problem with sound in windows.
Then, i upgraded my ubuntu from 8.10 to 9.04. But, i'm still having the problem.
Any suggestions...?

Have you checked your mixer settings? That's often the culprit.

If need be you can install the old mixer from synaptic, then make sure Master, PCM Front, PCm etc are not muted or zeroed.

Thank you for your suggestions. I got it. The front playback option in the mixer settings had been muted. Thanks...
