Don't do anything!!! 
Just don't reboot from Windows to Linux if you need sound. Shut down first.  
Windows programs the sound chip registers, a simple reboot will not clear them 
a total shutdown will. 
You just have to live with the limitations. Don't modify your system now that 
sound is working. This is the best advise I can give you.
