I've had issues before with alsa being disabled by default, I had to run 'alsactl init' to make the sound card behave

cheers

actually what you should try is to

1. unmute
2. go out of alsamixer (if thats what you are using)
3. type alsaclt store in the command line

That should save your settings and next boot everything is going to be as you left it (including the volume that you set)

To RaptorX,
can you clarify after unmuting do I have to right click on volume applet
(1)change from preferences
OR
(2)choose volume control & change device from file menu
or
BOTH
because alsa mixer is present in both.

I am sorry actually I thought you were using the command line.

In there you type alsamixer. Thats what i use for volume control in general.

You can try to unmute in the GUI. Then open the command line and type alsaclt store, check if that works.

not sure, the thing is that when alsa mixer does not "remember" the last state of the card you can manually use the "alsactl store" command to save it. Make sure you are running that command as root.

Now comes the question, do you have more than 1 card? or do you have a sound card integrated on the motherboard besides your card? because in that case you will have to specify "alsactl store -c0" or "alsactl store -c1"... I would do both just in case.

also take a look at this thread, maybe there is the answer:
