Check your logs. I've used pulse for years with nary a burp in the
barrel. Do you have pavucontrol installed?? If not, please do so. Use it
to attempt to configure your sound card. Pulse sits on top of alsa. If
alsa doesn't work, pulse doesn't stand a chance. I have the Realtek
alc892 and alsamixer finds it without problems. Do you have some old
edits to files like .asoundrc?? I do not have those files.

p/s when you use alsamixer you want to see "OO" and not "MM" at the
bottom of the volume bars. Use the 'm' key to switch the state and then
the arrows keys to switch between outputs/inputs. "OO" means they are
active and "MM" is muted.
