These are intentional. There is no proper widgets (in HD-audio term,
corresponding to registers) to behave for these purposes.
On 2.6.25, you have additional "Master" volume and switch so that
these won't matter much, I hope.

First, make sure that you unmuted the hardware volume / mute via
laptop keyboards.

If everything looks OK ("PCM" adjusted, "Headphone" and "Speaker"
unmuted) but still it doesn't work, it can be a driver problem.
If you set CONFIG_SND_HDA_POWER_SAVE, try to undefine it.

Or, try Ingo's patch Ted suggested. (To be noted, this couldn't get
in to the mainline because this causes problems on other devices.
2.6.24-git already inclues this patch but with some workarounds.)
