I am seeing a similar problem on my W520 and tried all the obvious things. I put the volume control on my toolbar and it is unmuted and all the way up. I installed aumix and alsamixer and turned off mute on all sliders and ran them up to what should be a reasonable level. I tried all the different sound 'cards' that showed up. I have Amarok running a playlist while I try things, so I would expect to hear something if I stumbled over the magic. So far, nada.
