Dell Inspiron e1705 Internal Speakers
Howdy all. Yesterday, I went to my friend's room to help him configure his FC5 installation on a Dell Inspiron e1705.
The only problem I was unable to solve involves his internal speakers. Sound plays fine through his headphones, but when the headphones are unplugged, nothing comes through the internal speakers. I know that the sound card is still working because ALSA reports that the line is in use when I try to change some settings.
In alsamixer, there is no option for speakers: there are only Master and PCM, neither of which is muted.
I am completely lost, and can't seem to find any solutions through Google. Does anyone have any ideas?
Oh, and for the record, the speakers do work. We tested them under Windows, and sound plays fine.

Be careful when you do this:
If the sound card registers in Linux but no sound is coming out of the computer, could it be that there is specific software that is required to use the speakers? If so, and the speakers are PCI, then one way to check for the sound devices (and information about the devices, not just the names) is:
