Is it possible that you've both on-board soundcard and a seperate soundcard?

I've the same issue in Ubuntu (used Fedora Core previously and it
worked). I remember that there's a bug filed for it. The problem is
that Ubuntu uses the on-board soundcard and it's not possible to
change it (for now). (In Fedora Core you could select which soundcard
to use, but enough about Fedora Core.) Search in the Ubuntuforums for
more information!

Just some info...
