Hi Dave. I'm not too impressed with pulseaudio, but that aside, first try the 
following command on KDE's Konsole, or Gnomes Terminal.

alsamixer -D hw:0

This will get you all of the alsamixer controls. There may may some control 
that may be muted. Look for, Master, PCM, Front. The "M" key controls the 
mute/unmute. Perhaps one of them just needs to be pushed up a bit.

If that doesn't fix anything you can disable pulseaudio by removing the 
alsa-plugins-pulseaudio package. You can always re-install it later, if it 
doesn't resolve the problem.

I have seen pulseaudio being responsible for low volume levels, and when 
removed the volume comes back to normal.

Worth a try.
