Exclamation Labtec spin-45 speakers, sound card on mobo, no sound


I recently installed mandrake 9.1 on my comp. The soundcard is built into the motherboard on this system, the mobo is a chaintech CT-ES 676m "Summit." I have a pair of cheap labtec spearks hooked up to the sound card. Mandrake says that it has a driver installed for these speakers, is it the wrong driver, or what?
-thanks, greenpenguin

ok im sure you have alsa libs installed so go and find a mixer app in your start panel or go to your shell and perform a su and then type amixer and have a look if it loads then type amixer -h to have a look at your settings but for you its better to get a gnome based mixer prog something like gmixer or so there should be some avaible out there use google or forums for search

I tried using KMix and turing the volume all the way up, no sound comes out of my speakers though...the cd player plays the cd, and i can hear it through headphones hooked directly to the cd player but no speakers...

I'm considering just buying a new sound card, if anyone has any suggestions on what works well, or how to fix my current sound, they would be greatly appreciated.
