No sound in Linux Mint


Hi
I have installed Linux Mint 17 Mate. I worked very well for many many days. However, today suddenly the sound system has stopped making any sound. Linux Mint is producing any sound, whatever audio/video player I use. How can I fix it?
Update: The sound system in Mate Control Center is making sound, however VLC/MPlayer are not producing any sound. But audacious is making sound.
PS. Other OSes are producing sounds correctly.

Make sure vlc and mplayer are using the correct output
Tools => preferences => audio

Perfect thank you. I have not had sound for 6 months, using alsamixer I was able to unmute the speakers, for some reason these do not appear in the Mint GUI mixer controls. Thank you.

Yep this does work, but I have to run alsamixer on every boot to manually enable speakers. How can I get the settings to stay put even after reboot.

Thanks.
Keith.
