A long shot, but does the user have permissions to hear sound?  Can you 
hear sound if you log in as the root user?  Have you tried both MP3 [or 
some file] sound and CD sound (the former requires decoders to be 
installed; the latter of which requires permissions to use the CD).  At 
some stage, all of these things have stumped me before in Linux...
