Most probably whatever happened to jack (with regards to the sound card)
completely hoses the system (driver/hardware/whatever). This is good in
the sense basic audio seems to be working.
Jack uses the most efficient way to access the soundcard and some
hardware is not good enough.

Well, I would __first__ try testing out jack and making sure it works.
Once it starts and runs solidly, then try other things. Ardour with a
non-working jack will not do much (which is what is happening to you).
Start small. Did you try the simple command line I suggested?:
jackd -R -d alsa -d hw:0
(which could even be "jackd -d alsa -d hw:0", you don't need rt to test)
Does it start? What does it print? (add "-v" for more details). Is there
anything in the output of dmesg after running that that looks like a
What I would try if that does not work (and you may need to reboot if it
really messes up things again) is:
jackd -R -d alsa -d hw:0 -p 1024 -n 3
That would increase the number of periods to 3 (you can also try 4)
which seems to make some cards work (specially hda variants). Depends on
