First of all, there is basicly (as far as I know) no way that a bad
audio CD could have messed up your audio settings.

Check to see if ESD is running (ps aux|grep esd) If it is, make sure
that RealPlayer is setup to use it (In RealPlayer's settings).

Also, try killing ESD (killall esd) and then restarting it (esd &). ESD
should make some beeps when it starts up. If it does, sound should be
working properly.
