intel hda audio very quiet

Seems like this is a common issue... and it seems to have been around for a while, so hopefully I'm just missing some very quick solution

I am using an ICH7 chipset, snd_hda_intel, sound is being produced fine, programs can use it, but it is extremely quiet. Turning up the master sound all the way doesn't do very much, and increasing PCM too much makes the sound crackly.

I am on a laptop, so I can't use external speakers to manually increase the sound... how can I get the internal software sound working better?

Thanks in advance!

There was a thread on this a couple of weeks back. There is a trouble ticket into alsa, so give it a bit, and it should be solved.
