Bug Description

One day for some strange reason, all audio output ceased. I've done a lot of diagnostics and common fixes that should have worked myself -- but I have yet to find a conclusion as everything seems to be in check. My soundcard is detected and isn't displayed as a "Dummy Card" as seen in many sound related errors. My mixer settings are fine. I've tried updating sound related repos and still have yet to come to a conclusion.

How strange.

I shutdown my laptop and removed the battery. Rebooted.

Now it's working.
