    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.)
