It's the plain snd-intel8x0 driver that I was using to begin with.
After fiddling with various driver settings for a couple of hours as
per the docs and a search all over the Internet I decided to try other
drivers that were supposedly compatible replacements including the
snd-intel8x0m. At midnight last night I sent out my request for
more info. This morning, I resumed my search and discovered that what
works is the i810_audio driver.
I thought perhaps that some BIOS changes were required because the
computer displays a message something to the effect that to use Unix
the BIOS needs to be configured differently for some reason. That
turned out not to be the case for Linux.
Thanks for you help,
