Assuming your (OP's) diagnosis is correct,
you can also blacklist the
pcspkr module in /etc/modprobe.conf.d/foo.conf
Interestingly, pcspkr is loaded here, but there's no corresponding ALSA
device: the only ALSA devices are for true sound cards.
IIRC when I ran into this, my card wasn't loading soon enough, so I
*think* the kernel (or ALSA) went "ruh roh, no cards, I'll fall back to
pcspkr" and then later the card arrived, so I had amixer -c0 was pcspkr
and amixer -c1 was the real sound card.
