If the sound works as root the following may help.

Sound works for user 'root' but not for others

This is to do with the fact that the audio device (/dev/dsp) is group owned by 'audio', but none of the users are part of that group. To correct this, run:

adduser <username> audio

Ensuring that if the users you are adding; are logged in at the time you ran the above command, that they logout and log back in again for it to work.
