If this were my problem, I'd try the 32 version of grml. Grml may not
use exactly the same kernel as is on the debian wheezy installation cd
but grml does use a stock debian kernel so it would be pretty close.
I'd ssh to my machine and try loading the hardware synth module. That
would allow me to see if an error message is generated and check the logs.
