Sound suddenly very quiet on laptop

The laptop I am using has a pair of external speakers attached.

It seems the sound has now suddenly gone very low (baby's sleeping noise level).

I have checked the laptop volume keys and made sure it is at the top.
I have checked the ubuntu volume applet is at the top.

This started happening after a patch and reboot at which time it said it could not start the volume control applet. I have manually re-added it to the top bar.

The sound preferences panel has all out sound as autodetect and the mixer as Intel HDA.

Any pointers very welcome or I am going to have to go back to headphones, great big speaker sized ones strapped to my head.

Thanks
RB

Ok,

Answer is here.

Something turned down the PCM volume (I suspect Realplayer). As I didn't have the volume control until I just manually added it I could not see and could only change the master volume .

Thanks
RB
