Quite a long time ago my soundcard stopped being recognized, I uninstalled PulseAudio and it still persists. The fun thing is that sometimes (extremely rarely) it will work just like it should. Below I attached alsa generated log file, please help.

+under Windows it works just fine so it didn't disconnect

Running pavucontrol gives me

Running start-pulseaudio-x11 gives E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup failed.

Try to configure your soundcard with pavucontrol. If it is not installed, install it with sudo dnf install pavucontrol-3.0-6.fc24.x86_64.

Uninstalling pulseaudio is not going to help at all. Where do people get the idea that it would?

You need to provide more information. What do you mean by "stopped being recognized"? What have you tried? What isn't working?

It entirely stopped being recognized, no sound devices in 'sound' menu in settings, I haven't tried anything cause I have no idea what may have caused it. Oh and I uninstalled pulseaudio because fedoraproject told me to do it.

How did you find that page? You didn't mention any errors like that.
