It can be disabled by using alsamixer.
To save your current settings as the default options, run
alsactl store as root.
HDA Analyzer to get direct hardware access to hda_intel cards:
This tool allows changing the HDA codec setting using direct hardware access
bypassing driver’s mixer layer.
To learn more about HDA (High Definition Audio), see
http://www.intel.com/standards/hdaudio/ for more details.
Please, if you find how your codec work, send this information to alsa-devel
