I have an HP Envy 3040nr: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834158219
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 unsuable. The sound applets refuse to even work.
I was unsure under which category to put this.
My OS: Arch Linux x64
