When I add "disable snd_hda_intel" in blacklist.conf, alsa says there is no sound device. My onboard audio uses intel audio which also uses snd_hda_intel.
I see this note in the wiki
I have to make a BIG NOTE that I don't have another Nvidia sound card on the motherboard, and that's why the above works for me. It won't work if you have an integrated nvidia sound AND a GT220.
Can someone suggest any specific changes that I may need to apply?
Not successful in disabling on-board audio using BIOS. "DEL" key doesn't work, it is a powerspec N101 PC. Is it possible it was locked by my system integrator?
