ALSA loading?

I follow the installation of ALSA but when I want to load the module I get

modprobe snd-intel8x0

/lib/modules/ init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/ insmod /lib/modules/ failed
/lib/modules/ insmod snd-intel8x0 failed

What to do? Any suggestions?

dmesg output

PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin B of device 00:1f.5. Please try using pci=biosirq.
ALSA intel8x0.c:2529: unable to grab IRQ 0
Intel ICH soundcard not found or device busy

There is some kind of irq problem, but what to do for fixing this?

I would try clearing CMOS. And make sure you set PnP OS to no in BIOS setup.
