In a user console, run alsamixer.  Move around and adjust with the arrow 
keys.  'M' toggles mute.  You can usually see from this whether one channel 
is low and affecting all the others.  If you can get the result you want, 
quit alsamixer and run 'alsactl store'.  In theory it should by default save 
the value that you had when you shut down.  By doing the store command you 
have something it can restore to, if it doesn't have a shutdown save.  HTH
