Pulse-audio not working?

view story

http://crunchbang.org – Hello, Ive just started using crunchbang and im really happy with how the system functions and i can pretty much see myself using it for some time.However i have encountered a problem, I dont have any audio. Pulse-audio doesn't seem to be working, which is the default sound software if im not mistaken. I dont have a volume control icon on the dock and under open box menu>multimedia, the application "volume control" doesnt do anything.Ive tried reinstalling pavcontrol but still no luck, Im fairly new to troubleshooting on this level so im not really sure what i should add to t (HowTos)
