How to switch beetween sound cards ?

I have two sound cards. One sound card came with my motherboard. I bought the other in order to connect 5.1 speakers.

Long time ago, I was using alsaconf to choose witch sound card I wanted to use. And I was able to switch between the 2. And it was working pretty well.

I didn't really touched it for years.

Unfortunately I had to reboot (with a new kernel etc.), and now the sound is displayed on the internal chip (on the mobo). How can I tell alsa to use the other sound card ?

Is there a way to do this without a reboot (someone suggested to change settings in BIOS, but well...).

Thanks for your answers.

After posting the previous post, I saw this tread in the related threads :

Long story short, I'm not sure what I did (:/) but it works now.

Maybe it was the modprobe run once again.

I hope this won't fail again...

Sorry for the noise.
