I am not sure about the 82801H, but the 82801G can have problems if
yours is not one of the ones that ALSA know the configuration of.
You then need to specify a model in modprobe.conf to let the driver
know what configuration to use. (The chip can be configured in many
different ways, depending on how the manufacturer wants to use it.)

To make things more interesting, the model that mostly works in one
version of ALSA may not work in the next one. For example, this one
used to work on my Toshibs A105-S4004:

options snd-hda-intel index=0 single_cmd=1 model=ref

In a later version, I had to use:

options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=auto

I still have to find the correct line for the current version when I
have the spare time to do it.
