If you hear something using your ear phones, this indicates that there is no problem with your sound card / ALSA driver.
Are you sure that you did not mute the pc speakers by accident? Open the Volume Applet (double-click on the loud speaker symbol on your panel) and check the settings for "PC speaker".
If you don't have a the Volume Applet in your panel you can add it by right-clicking on the panel and select "Add to Panel". In the window which opens scroll down and select "Volume Control" and click on the "Add" button.
