Ask on ALSA list, but, last I checked, hda-intel == useless peice of shit.

I gave up after being told that there was no hope of hda-intel ever working properly on linux. I use an external sound device (M-Audio FastTrack Pro USB) and it works beautifully. 

Even a cheap US$8 USB audio dongle worked well, and much better than the hda-intel.
