I recently bought a ASUS A7M notebook, I could buy this sweet darling with Suse 10.1 preinstalled... Everything worked fine but Suse is just way to slow for this modern laptop... So I decided to install arch... The performance and speed are magical compared to Suse aldoh I have a problem installing the sound device.
Here are the specs of the notebook:

After installing arch, adding myself to the audio group and setting up alsa I still have no decent sound...
when I plug in my headphones I hear sound, both alsa and oss seem to work but the sound is verry dirty and noisy ... My speakers don't give any sound... Is this an module-issue?
My sounddevice should be Realtek/Nvidia HDA

After an aggressive google-search I found the solution...
I reloaded the "snd_hda_intel" module with "model=asus".
modprobe snd_hda_intel model=asus
Everything works fine now
