If upgrading other ALSA packages does not work, see if it works with
ALSA CVS (alsa-lib, alsa-utilsm, and alsa-kernel).

Also, even though you said you did not change it, check your mixer
configuration again - there was a change to that driver that could have
caused some users to lose mixer settings (newer versions of alsactl work
around it).
