I ran into something much like this with a Intel D845GRG Motherboard 
with onboard Audio.

Try launching the ALSA Mixer and increasing the volume on the Headphone 
mixer. Don't ask me why but for me this worked. I found the tip on the 
ALSA mailing list and it seams to affect quite a few AC97 compatabile 
onboard audio chipsets but I can't find mention of the issue of anywhere 
on ALSA's website, just from user reports on the mailing list.
