I disabled onboard sound in the BIOS. All that's happened, unsurprisingly,
is the built-in sound is no longer listed.

The other HDA is I think provided by the video card, which I can't take out.
But in any event, given that it used to work, the most likely scenario is
software configuration - maybe it's to do with UDEV, or whatever handles
USB connections, but most likely to do with Alsa, which doesn't want to
initialize USB for some reason.
