damn thats a little overkill on info but

may be the culprit here somehow. Maybe by the sole fact its nvidia or maybe your audio out is clogged? check it, but I am unsure if that is the problem. Try to update your drivers if they are available. All the other audio devices may also be the problem but the nvidia audio caught my eye, because everyone knows Linux doesn’t work too well with nvidia stuff.
