Please, read sysctl(8) for proper syntax.

Add to /etc/sysctl.conf
Code:
hw.snd.default_unit=1

Then reboot to make changes.

the forums have indicated that xfce4-mixer is buggy and hence i switched to gnome-volume-control which come with gnome-multimedia. i am able to use the slider to increase or decrease the volume but i can still hear no sound on my speakers or my headphones..

however another reading of

Well, I use xfce-mixer and works correctly. You need configured the applet.

To do that Click Properties and select Mixer track PCM.

But if you have solved it as you have explained above, I'm glad for it.

Please, mark the thread as solved.
