Before you do that - and not to say that Nigel's answer isn't correct - I
suggest you try Florian's suggestion quoted above: I was the someone who had
that problem and the fix was simple: run alsamixer and mute the headphone
(This is rather confusing but it means the headphone channel still works when
plugged into, and otherwise the speakers are on. For some reason it was
unmuted by default, which switches off the speakers.)
This was an Intel 82801DB-ICH4, so it may not apply, but worth a quick try.
