ati sound driver crash on debian

Hi all,
I bought a new box, asus m5e97 evo r2, amd fx 8320, ati hd 7750, and sata disks and ....
I installed debian wheezy and I have two problems (or even more...) right now:
1. during boot the grub screen is not the same. I mean the menu and background are the same, but the position and resolution may change.
2. there is a known bug with one of my disks:, currenlty it sometimes works, sometimes missing.
3. debian did not recognize nic properly I had to reinstall the correct driver.
4. this one is the most important, the main goal right now:
I have a sound card on the motherboard, it works properly. There is also a sound chip on the video card, it is recognized, but the driver crashes during boot. Actually the message displayed on the console, but not stored so cannot find it. I have no idea what is the problem and how can I even try to fix it.
I tried amd proprietary driver, but it was all about the video...

maybe the sound card of the MB is conflicting with that on your video, cause only one can own the resources at a time. Set the order your cards are known to the system:

~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
this lists all (to the system) known cards. Dicide which one is your default card to be used. Then create or edit /etc/asound.conf to read something like:

# use Generic as default device
# (cat /proc/asound/cards)
pcm.!default {
type hw
card Generic
ctl.!default {
type hw
card Generic
this defines card "Generic" as default from the output of /proc/asound/cards as the default one to use. Your output can show other names, but I found it is important to use the names of the sound cards and not "card 0", "card 1" but e.g. "card asus" and card "ati" and so on.

Also include this line into your
options snd_hda_intel model=auto

Reboot and be (hopefully) lucky
