Hi,
my next thought is that it might be one of the kernel modules not loading.
I however do not know which one it would be.

You might try searching for your audio hardware and the kernel modules
needed for it.
you can run lsmod to see which ones you have loaded.

Maybe someone else has a similar card as well, and might know if there
is a different thing that will fix it.
