I have an HP Envy 3040nr:

It has Dre "Beats" speaker. I do not know if they are the cause of the issue, but this computer suffer sever hang ups after log in.
Gnome-shell gdm cannot activate on this computer unless I use a workaround.
This happens with Arch, Ubuntu, Mint, and Fedora.

My workaround is to add "blacklist snd-usb-audio" to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Without using this workaround, the computer borders on unusable. The sound applets refuse to even work.

Additional info:
Pulseaudio 2.1-1

My upstream report:
This task depends upon
