you do not need any drivers for speakers.

check any of the 'mixers' for volume

#lspci -v

You need to run this first, to detect your sound card:
Code:
alsaconf
Then, still as root:
Code:
alsamixer
Then when you've got the right settings:
Code:
alsactl store

It is not a driver problem or OS problem. You do not need any drivers for speakers. Select the correct output device and adjust mixer and check any of the 'mixers' for volume.

@brian:
for alsaconf the output is:
Code:
[pradeep@localhost ~]$ alsaconf
bash: alsaconf: command not found
[pradeep@localhost ~]$
when i gave alsamixer command and pressed f6 it came like this,
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4101/...8d8b2432_b.jpg
i was not able to select and give any other sound device in that window,
also i dono about the name of the sound device which is asked in that window,
by default the default option is selected.

You need to be root to run alsaconf. It will detect your sound card(s), and give you the option of which to choose. Then, still as root, run alsamixer and make any adjustments, then run alsactl store.

I think its a speakers problems. or Drivers problems. First of all remove your current driver and reinstall your sound driver and check that driver is working or not. and if you face same problem then check your speaker cable is ok,and if cable is ok then check your speaker.
