Hi Peter. I saw a suggestion to add snd-hda-intel to /etc/modules when there
were sound problems requiring you to run alsaconf after each reboot. Quite
why this is necessary, I've no idea, but hda-intel cards present a plethora
of problems, as they are all different, depending on the mobo they are setup
All the best.
