I was mucking with my sound card hardware profile in the Sound Preferences menu and I seem to have lost my sound. But what's strange is that when I open the Pulseaudio Volume Control panel I can see the audio bar moving and if I pause or stop my music, the bar stop. But no sound is coming out of my speakers.

And I've checked the obvious speaker connections, restarted the machine, dpkg-reconfigure pulseaudio, deleted the .pulse folder from my home directory, etc. Nothing seems to be working.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

The soundcard is an internal CL Sound Blaster, the onboard audio is turned off on my motherboard.
