?

/etc/modprobe.d/sound 


  options snd-usb-audio index=0
  options snd_hda_codec_hdmi(or whatever it's called)=1
  options snd(etc...)=2

There's a plethora of info on sound card ordering, but much of it is
obsolete I'm afraid.

Whether making the usb dongle the default card by creating a ~.asoundrc file:

pcm.!default {
type hw
card 2
}

ctl.!default {
type hw
card 2
} 

would work or not I dunno. I read that for the Lenovo to get an external
usb sound card working the card must be indexed as card 0 (numero uno).
