I experienced this problem also and it seemed to fix itself after fiddling with some settings. from what i can remember i made sure of a few things.
1. when right clicking on the sound icon in the far right bottom corner and going to preferences it is set to the correct device and set to master. (for me alsa mixer)
2. double clicking on the icon going to file device check its set to the same device (for me alsa mixer)
3. daryna menu > search for sound > check playback is set to automatic and default mixer tracks is the same device as 1. and 2. (for me alsa mixer)
4. now i remember that the settings did not take effect immediately and i gave up and just kept using my computer it actually took 20minutes and i was just using it not fiddiling any further when it suddenly started working but i'd suggest a reset or log out/in.

you are saying that your sound is low hmm did you hibernate by any chance? i've experienced low sound problems after waking up from that in ubuntu and in mint, in ubuntu a reboot fixed it i can't remember if it fixed it in mint tho..

If you are using external speakers, master volume may not work. Right-click the sound icon in the panel and then click preferences. You can change the setting to PCM or headphone (at least in my case) to control the volume from the panel. Double-click the icon to change the levels for PCM, headphone, and master volume (I only use PCM and headphone volume settings, keeping the master volume muted since I use a laptop with external speakers.) Hope this helps.
