New thread, next problem

Greetings all;

I had to reboot after 19+ days of uptime yesterdat, dinking around with a 
new hard drive that wasn't quite new. 
Anyway, since then I have only had the new mail beep from mail as 
entertainment, all web video is silent movies, and even Kscd is muted as 
in the volume control is greyed out.

This has all worked without a trace of pulse even being installed.

Here is my SWAG on it.  This motherboard has 2 snd-hda-intel driven 
systems thru the MCP55 chipset on this M2N-SLI Deluxe asus board.

My video card, is an eVga whose hdmi audio is not even bonded out, so 
while it signs in when an lcpci  -vv is exec'd, the only noise its ever 
made is from the GeForce4 8400 GS's cooling fan, which is typically a 
bearing rattling annoyance.  Its an eVga, what can I say, you buy 
aftermarket fans in 3 packs for them, and its on its 2nd of the 3 now.

But I think somehow that the snd-hda-intel driver has linked itself to 
the no output stuff on this video card.

Since the same snd-hda-intel driver runs both, how can I blacklist the 
worthless one?  Can I edit something in udev.d to cause the product 
number 1302 to be ignored?  That might be the ultimate hammer to drive 
tis nail it seems.

Comments, audio guru's?

Cheers, Gene Heskett
