Sound: no sound

No sound at all.
OS: Dapper 6.06.
Soundcard: Creative Sound Blaster 16PCI
alsamixer shows the graphical display and I can adjust the sliders and
switch the switches.
The speaker icon shows maximum sound and is unmuted.
System>Preferences>Sound has sounds selected for each event and both
boxes are checked
(Enable software sound mixing and Play system sounds).
The sound worked twice, but each time, when I turned off the computer and
re-started it, it disappeared.
(Yeah, I should have left it on.) If I right-click on the speaker icon
and check Preferences, I get a display
that shows various output channels, but selecting 3D Control-Center, 3D
Control-Depth, PCM or Aux
has no effect.
If I double-click the speaker icon I get a different volume control that
mirrors the one in alsamixer, and
changing one changes the other.
In a terminal, if I enter: sudo addgroup <user> audio I get a
response that I am already in the audio
If I enter: asoundconf list I get "audioPCI."
As I say, the sound worked twice, but I have inadvertently switched a
flag or something. Any advice?
