Okay then, your problem is the modem, look here

On the first instruction instead of 2.5.24-17 use your current kernel.  If you 
did the updates it should be 2.5.24-19 and use the instructions for having 
8.04 already installed.  Then after you download the modem driver, in your 
terminal, BEFORE you do the sudo command, you need to cd into the directory 
where ever you downloaded the file.  You should now have your sound back!  I 
started trying to fix this last Friday afternoon.  Didn't work on it over the 
weekend for obvious reasons.  Thought I'd tackle it again today and got it 
working this morning.
