Unhappy Sounds not working on sis966 Azalia.

I did alsaconf, I have the modules loaded (as far as I can tell), I set all the volumes to max with alsamixer, the programs play the files but for some reason I get no sound.

I had this problem before and it was fixed by adding "options snd-hda-intel model=laptop" to my /etc/modprobe.d/sound but I reinstalled my whole system and this time that solution doesn't seem to work. In alsamixer I don't have Master showing up at all, which was the case the previous time too but now it doesn't show up there even after adding that line.

I also tried updating alsa but that made no difference.

bash-3.1# lspci | grep Audio

bash-3.1$ lsmod | grep snd

If you need more info just ask. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Oh and I'm running Slackware 12.1.
