I gave up trying to resolve it and bought a cheap ($5) 64 bit pci sound card on ebay from hong kong. Actually I bought several of them and they work fine in every computer except the Dimension 2400, where only the right speaker plays sound and the left speaker makes a low rumbling sound. The mic works fine, along with the right speaker. I tried removing pulseaudio and installing esound. No luck. I removed alsa and had to reinstall it along with pulseaudio to get sound in even the right speaker.

p.s. With the pci sound card installed I have to disable the onboard sound card, or I get no sound at all. In the other computers, this is not necessary, I can simply select the sound card I want in the sound card preferences.
