It can happen that after the 10.5.5 Update on OSX86, ALC883 based soundcards do not work anymore (not detected by OS X). To fix this, download the ALC883.dump.txt file and the AppleHDAPatcherv1.20. Unpack the latter, start the patcher and drag the dump file on it to patch the faulty kernel extension. Should also work with other ALC88X soundcards by using the appropriate dump file (Google is your friend for finding those).
