Had sound, then some sound, now no sound, no soundcard detected

First, my sob story...

I've been chasing this problem for over a week. When I google for sound problems on Fedora, *every* link returned by Google appears visited--ie. I've read them all and tried them all. I've gone through all the emotional stages of loss: anger, denial, grief, depression, etc., but I've turned the corner and am determined to bring my sound back!


Description of my problem
:
A fresh install of Fedora 16 on a Dell Optiplex 390. Initially sound worked fine (I'm using headphones) (YouTube videos played as expected). Then I jumped through some hoops to install Spotify and the sound worked fine there, too. Then I I started noticing problems with YouTube--videos wouldn't autoplay, would stop unexpectedly, or the sound would get choppy. And I noticed that the main system volume control did not affect the volume of YouTube videos. Then the sound in Spotify stopped all together, and that's when things spiraled downward. I started reading everything under the sun about sound problems on Fedora and was installing all sorts of pulseaudio utilities, alsa utilities, and editing conf files. I lost track of everything I did, but the end result is....

My current situation:

Alsa Info
http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=91...414f2a5840b8f7

Sound Settings > Hardware = No devices listed
Sound Settings > Output = Dummy Output

Code:
$ ls -l /dev/snd
ls: cannot access /dev/snd: No such file or directory
Any tips would be really appreciated.

Re: Had sound, then some sound, now no sound, no soundcard detected

Removed and reinstalled several pulseaudio and alsa packages. Now I have /dev/snd, but still no sound.

Code:
$ ls -l /dev/snd/
total 0
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 116,  1 Apr  4 10:22 seq
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 116, 33 Apr  4 10:22 timer
Unfortunately...

Code:
$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:252: no soundcards found...

My hope is that the more information I provide in this thread, the more search hits it will get and the better chance someone can help diagnose my problem.

I'm convinced I did something stupid to my system. I had sound working just last week! How could I have gone from sound working to "no soundcards detected"?!?

Here's output from 'pulseaudio -vvvvv'
