This is a clean install of Mint 17 KDE.
I seem to have 2 options:
1. Built-in Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI)
2. Built-in Audio Analog Stereo
The HDMI doesn't work at all. The sound on the other is very low.

When I try Alsamixer, I'm told:
│ Card: HDA ATI HDMI
│ Chip: ATI R6xx HDMI
In the middle of the screen there's a little box with 00 in it. Underneath the box is < S/PDIF >
I have no idea what any of this means. I only know that with sound pushed to the max, I can barely hear anything. System sounds are a little better, but not much. This laptop also has Win 7 on it, and the sounds are fine there.
I've searched the forums and it seems to be an isue in Mint 17 generally. Hopefully, someone has a solution?
