after installing ALSA drivers, the mixer channels are always muted and
will keep being muted on startup until you do this:

1. in a terminal, open alsamixer.

2. adjust volumes to how you would like them on startup.

3. exit alsamixer and change to the root user in  the terminal.

4. as root, do this:

/usr/sbin/alsactl store

5. reboot.

your mixer settings should now be restored to how you had them just
before running the alsactl command.

hope it works!
