Please remove these two lines, start PA and then do a "pacmd list" and
attach that output here.

I strongly suspect that there is no problem with the sound itself, but
rather one of configuration.

I also see you are running phonon and thus KDE. Depending on how you
boot, this could load a different module for stream routing. But I'll
advise more on that after you supply the above output.

FWIW, the "Failed to find a working profile" error you see is actually
from a second sound device on your machine (card 29, which is a very
high index. Not sure what this is, but it's certainly not hw:0 and is
likely something strange perhaps a docking station or something?)
