Make the sound louder in Lubuntu

I have a Toshiba r835 running Lubuntu 11.10. Turning the volume slider up all the way doesn’t give very loud sound. I’ve tried typing
alsamixer in a terminal and turning up all the levels there to maximum, but the speakers are still fairly quiet. Is there a simple way to increase maximum volume in software?
I understand that there are physical limits to the sound the laptop’s speakers can produce, but I suspect my maximum volume is limited by software.
This is exactly the type of solution I’m looking for. However, it doesn’t work for me. What I did:
sudo pico /etc/asound.conf
This file does not exist, so I create a new one, containing:
I reboot the machine, and type
alsamixer. I use my left/right arrow keys to inspect the various volume options. I expect to see a new option, called
Pre-Amp, but I don’t see one. This fix seems to work for other people. Why doesn’t this fix work for me?
