    hdaudio hdaudioC0D2: Unable to bind the codec

    Booting up takes ages on my laptop with ubuntu 19.10. It goes to black screen and outputs
    hdaudio hdaudioC0D2: Unable to bind the codec
    before eventually booting up into gnome.

    I want to boot up faster ....

    I've edited the grub file to include 'nomodeset' or else it won't boot up at all ...

    can anyone help ?
    I wish my computer would do what I want it to do - not what I tell it to do.

    If you need 'nomodeset'... You have a problem with the graphics.

    It goes to black screen and outputs
    Definitely a problem with graphics.

    This error message
    Code:
    hdaudio hdaudioC0D2: Unable to bind the codec
    may or may not be related with the graphics as well (HDMI audio), but one step at the time...

    Please post your Ubuntu version and hardware specifications, namely the graphics. I suspect you have a Nvidia graphics that needs proprietary drivers (you may keep using 'nomodeset' to have a graphical environment; after installing the Nvidia drivers it won't be needed and the system should boot and run smoothly).

    Yes, you should remove it. Otherwise it won't load the drivers even if installed. 'nomodeset' is a workaround only. Its purpose is to give a generic graphics mode and override the default open-source driver that isn't fully compatible with your card. Oncve the Nvidia drivers are installed and loading properly, you no longer need 'nomodedset'.
