Sound not working

Some days ago sound was working, today it isn't and I am tired of fighting X, 
so I don't know where to start solving this issue.
Amarok and alsaplayer seems to play but nothing is heard (like if volumes were 
down, but they aren't, they are all at full).
Now, let's get to the interesting error messages:
pupeno at plab:~/Examples$ aplay ubuntu\ Sax.ogg
ALSA lib pcm_direct.c:786:(snd_pcm_direct_initialize_slave) 
snd_pcm_hw_params_any failed
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:831:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to initialize slave
aplay: main:544: audio open error: Invalid argument
pupeno at plab:~/Examples$ aplay -l ubuntu\ Sax.ogg
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: AD198x Analog [AD198x Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

and now some data:

pupeno at plab:~/Examples$ lsmod | grep snd

Any clues about what might be wrong here ?
