I use intrepid with 2.6.27-9-generic kernel on dell inspiron 1501 with the same problem. The workaround from Mario and chrono13 didn't work for me. I found this message in dmesg after doing it: 

hda-intel: IRQ timing workaround is activated for card #0. Suggest a
bigger bdl_pos_adj.

What does that mean?

As it might be connected to this problem, let me tell you that I also
have the following bugs:

(MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC"

("Aperture beyond 4GB. Ignoring." message when booting)

(Re: ehci_hcd module causes I/O errors in USB 2.0 devices)

Devices like my printer or wd passport external hdd keep crashing. When
I try to mount them again after such crashing (or just after having them
unmounted manually before), they won't work anymore. I have to restart
the whole system. Everything seems to be connected to an apic-error. (I
need apic, so the option -noapic won't do. Besides, the problem should
be solved and not hidden).

As it also might be a bios problem: I have the latest version of bios
2.6.3 .

Please let me know if you need more information.
