The problem is it won't let you remove snd-hda-intel because it's
being used by other stuff. There is a command to remove it and remove
other stuff with it as well.

The only problem is getting all the stuff it pulled out back again (of
course rebooting will put everything back luckily).

So type the following (and cross your fingers):

sudo -i
modprobe -r snd-hda-intel
modprobe snd-hda-intel probe_mask=8 model=auto
modprobe snd

(the exit gets you out of the root terminal)

Tell me what happens.

I am basing this on Matthews email. It may or may not work.
