I have physically looked at the codec on the M/B. It (as best I can
see it) is Realtek ALC889A.
I found this document  that seemed they were working on the kernel
to make some changes regarding this exact chip. In hopes that I would
get a fix for the problem I have upgraded to kernel 2.6.27-1. I am
also now running Sid (unstable). Neither of these changes have
effected the sound. Although there are times that I can manage to get
sound, it is never across reboots. It always takes some time after a
reboot in order to get sound working. Maybe it is coincidence. Maybe
it is some sort of timing issue. Always after some series of 'alsa
force-reload; rmmod snd-hda-intel; modprobe -v snd-hda-intel'.
Just so you are aware, there are two threads  on the
Debian-users list regarding this issue. I posted there prior to
opening this bug report. I believe I have given you all the same
information (or more) that I posted there.
I have not upgraded to the latest ALSA drivers yet. Still running the
Sid version of drivers.
Hopefully with all this information, you'll be able to help me resolve
