Sorry if I seemed unhelpful, but each sound card is different.  I had a 
similar problem but for me it was too quiet.  I tried entering the 
amixer command that I found with Google but it didn't work.  I had to 
read the man page and experiment until it worked.  You can try these two 
commands though:

amixer set Master playback 25,25

The later is supposed to be interactive but it didn't do much for me.  
No guarantees on the former but that eventually worked for me.
