[colug-432] Can't find Audio Card

The e1705 (with sigmatel 9200) had troubles with the sound working after
upgrading to Windows 7 as well.  I remember trying every available sigmatel
driver / codec available without great results.  It didn't work out of the
box with Ubuntu either but I know I did get it working.  My notes just
don't show how and memory is not that good.

I think Sigmatel was brought in to Intel and the drivers were never
properly upgraded after.  Is it possible you only have the one card?

and look
sudo lspci -v | grep audio

Only show Intel as well.

I suspect the Sigmatel hardware is bad. Would linux see the Sigmatel
hardware if it was bad?

In your OP, you mentioned that you could never get the Sigmatel drivers to
function under Windows. Are you sure that XP wasn't just being stupid in
how it was reporting, and that you actually don't have any Sigmatel

I suppose it's not completely impossible to have two different audio chips
from different makers on board, each for a single and different purpose --
one to play audio and one to record audio? -- but I've been doing this for
a long time and I've never come across that. It seems even more weird to
find it in a run-of-the-mill laptop.
