Correcting No Audio/Sound Output with Dell Inspiron 1525 loaded with Windows Vista

I encountered a Dell Inspiron 1525 preloaded with Windows Vista that suddenly stopped audio sounds. All settings seemed correct at first glance. Device Manager showed the sound device working properly.

So I booted off of an Ubuntu 9.10 live CD, and when the Linux desktop came up, sound came from the computer speakers. Thus the hardware was confirmed to be working.
