sound not working on console only Wheezy laptop

I am trying to get the sound working on a console only Wheezy laptop (all
current software updates).
I know the hardware works from (dual) booting to Windows XP.

I get no sound, not even system beeps. Initially I was getting an error on
bootup that said "Driver 'pcspkr' is already registered, aborting...",
but after investigating a bit decided to load alsa-base and that error
message no longer appears.

I used alsamixer to turn up the volume on all the channels, still no
sound. Running speaker-test gives no sound either.
I am currently only using mp3's to test with. When I try to play an mp3
file I get no  errors, just no sound.

I must be missing something... any ideas?
