... and un-muted?

note: specially with alsamixer one might rise even a muted slide without noticing it's muted!

EDIT://

You are aware of the fact that you have two audio cards installed? That's why it is not working.

Easiest way is to deactivate the nvidia on-board audio device (in BIOS).

Else you could select the preferred device in the systems-settings (KDE-phonon) and look at the manuale for how to configure two audio cards.
Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

Once you get the two Audio card issue resolve. If you continue with volume problems...

Install Pulse Audio Volume Control..
 Seems to Get the Volume to levels over 100% ..145%
Different media will have been recorded at different sound levels requiring sometimes an adjustment of over 100%..

On Audigy-Cards is a really f*cking issue: in alsamixer you find a slide witch is a switch called jack-audio or so. This changes between analog and digital output. Try to change this one and you will find your sound.

[edit]"Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack" is the name of the switch.[/edit]
Wenn Windows die Lösung ist...
kann ich dann bitte das Problem zurück haben?

I have the same card and constant problems with sound.  

I guess my experiment with this distro is over.  It's unusable if sound never works.

Is a really nice description of your problem with the soundcard...
But it says nothing about what you try, what's not working and so noone can help you even if he would.

I don't know.  I tried too many things.  I now have pulseaudio installed and no sound for various software applications.  For e.g., when I play a youtube video, playing VLC or any media player.

Ok, you have installed pulseaudio. So you have to change the driver from "alsa" to "pulseaudio" in the settings of each application that now doesn't work.

Tuxracer,
if you want to go on spreading FUD about siduction, you really better leave. your problems have nothing to do with siduction and since you appeared here, have never been able or willing to provide any specs that someone can work with. so a lot of people ignore you by now.

Free speech isn't just fucking saying what you want to say, it's also hearing what you don't want to fucking hear

I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

Sorry.  Well, I don't want to be ignored if my posts are civil. :)

You're right.  Also, I didn't read his post clearly as the other poster noticed it appears there's a soundboard conflict.

He probably disabled the onboard sound since he hasn't posted, since?

I solved my issues, btw.  In xfce, there seems to be a lot of pulseaudio settings compared to others.  

Anyway, I have a better grasp of what was going on.

My Hardware, btw:
soundcard: Audigy 2ZS
mobo:  P5Q
HDDs:  3 installed (2 set up in enclosures as external)
Corsair HX520W
Logitech Clearchat headset (usb)
Nvidia GeForce 7950GT (I want to get a GT 650)

Please accept my apologizes for the recent outburst.
