Thanks for your response.

Yep, that's HDA Intel.  I only use the internal card as somewhere to
plug in my headphones - think I might take the driver out of the kernel
and just use my external Behringer USB card.

This, unfortunately, is not an option for me :(  I have to run ACPI in
able to get the system fan to run at full speed - if it doesn't, the
whole machine freezes up after about 20 minutes (or less) run time due
to what I suspect is the GPU overheating.  I'm beginning to seriously
regret getting this ThinkPad - Lenovo is ruining them; should have stuck
to Toshiba...
