alsamixer not working

I compiled all the drivers in the kernel for my sound, but alsamixer is not working and it gives me this error:

 ~ $ alsamixer
ALSA lib simple_none.c:1710:(simple_add1) helem (MIXER,'Capture Switch',0,3,0) appears twice or more

alsamixer: function snd_mixer_load failed: Invalid argument
And this is from my lspci:
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI technologies Inc SB450 HDA Audio (rev01)
cat /proc/asound/cards:
0 [SB             ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB
                     HDA ATI SB at 0xd0500000 irq 18
But at boot, the ALSA modules and everything seem to load fine.

How can I get alsamixer working?
