Thank you for your response, Ric.  I hadn't tried alsamixer. In fact,
I've never pulled the alsa mixer up since install, I'm using PulseAudio,
and so have used the PulseAudio controls.  In any event, I'm not sure
what I should see with the alsa mixer, but I only have a master playback
control, which is at 100% and a capture control, also set for 100%.
There are no other controls available on the alsamixer.  I'm almost to
the point of completely un-installing gnome, and then re-installing
gnome from scratch (if that is even possible) to see if I can get them
back.  I play music and other audio all the time, but I also use the
audio notifications, especially for email, and hate it when they are

Que te vaya bien
