Speaker problem with Pavillion dv5 1040ev.

I have installed slackware 12.1 on my laptop dv5 1040ev but i cannot get the onboard speakers to work. I do not think that it is an alsa problem since the jacks are working fine when i plug in headphones. Any others having the same problem? Where should i start looking for a solution?
