Open a terminal window and type alsamixer then check the main volume to make sure it is up. If you've never worked with the alsa mixer just use your directional keys to navigate left or right, the up down will raise or lower the highlighted section. When you are done press the Esc. key to exit the program.

Try adjusting also PCM, front, wave etc, etc.. depending on the card.
Make sure the channel you adjust is not muted ('MM' at the base of the volume bar, if you see this press 'm' to unmute).
