SOLVED Solution: Add the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist : blacklist snd_cmipci This disabled the c-media module. After reboot everything magically works.

[SOLVED] Corrupt C-Media together with Sound Blaster

Welcome All, First I would like to say how impressed I am with Linux Mint. I have never seen a Linux so user friendly before. I installed it on 3 computers (2 desktops and 1 laptop) and everything works out of the box. Even Radeon graphics and Intel graphics magically works after first boot. My GeFo...
