Hey Jim, unfortunately resetting the BIOS settings to factory defaults doesn't fix the issue (either under Linux or Windows). I'm wondering if the "factory default" settings offered by the BIOS don't match the actual factory default settings of the as-shipped laptop :-(

I'll try to find out if there's an easy way to remove the CMOS backup battery on this laptop.

I'm unclear on why you say that the CMOS RAM/NVRAM can't be read by software... isn't that what the snd_hda_intel driver does when it tries to use the BIOS settings??
