Last night, after updating my fresh installation of fedora 21 using yum, my sound stopped working! When i open audacity and try to record via microphone, it records what appears to be static. (It looks like it, but i can't hear).
running alsamixer gives this output:

ALSA lib pulse.c:243:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect: Connection refused

cannot open mixer: Connection refused

oddly, if i logout and go to my list of users (just me) i can change the volume and even hear the drip sound!

I have a similar problem that very recently occurred. I get a horrid scratching sound when booting Fedora, or Centos Linuxes on that box. The mother board is a Intel945gnt and both linux versions appear to use the same interface. I will be retesting with a fedora that is two releases back.

I have a similar problem. I get horrid static noise during boot, and then, no sound whatsoever.
My motherboard is an intel945gnt. What motherboard is used by your system?
