Open a terminal and run alsamixer. Use the left and right arrow keys to cycle between the different sound sources. Use the up arrow key to raise the volumes all the way up. If any of the sound sources have a MM at the bottom, then navigate to them with the arrow keys and unmute them withe the m key. Then close alsamixer with the Esc key and see if the sound works.

@kami1230, start a new thread for problems unrelated to thread topic.

Glad it helped!
Running alsamixer and turning all of the volume levels all of the way up should always be the first thing you do to troubleshoot a sound problem in Linux.

Sorry, but I can't help with the Empathy IM problem. As amani said, this is a separate problem and would warrant a new thread.
