Try installing pavucontrol from a terminal window.

$ sudo aptitude install pavucontrol

This will install Pulse Audio Volume Control which you can then access from your main menu (It usually gets dumped under the "Sound and Video" heading.) Open it up and click on the Output Devices tab, then click on the green button next to the card you want to set as your preferred device. Be sure to restart whatever program you were trying to use.
