Either disable in the bios or post your /etc/modprobe.conf file and see if it list both sound cards. If it does then you can remap it by reversing which one is 0 and 1.

Well listen to this, b4 u guys even wrote that i disabled my bios soundcard and it STILL didnt work...But for the future of people who might need this forum...Disable the bios on your soundcard.. Then go to Terminal and type alsamixer , then enable scroll to the side till you see Audigy A and press M to enable it.. And then you will hear sound.

Guys thanks for your help but i found out myself cause i was going crazy LOL ... Thnx everyone...

-peace, mike.
