Debian 10 sound not working


My sound is not working on a fresh install of Debian 10.
I have aux speakers connected to the motherboard audio jack and a USB headset with microphone in a USB slot. If either of these emits sound I'll be happy.

Debug information below. I don't understand what all of these things mean but based on similar posts I think this is all relevant.

Code:
root@thebeast:~# uname -srm
Linux 4.19.0-13-amd64 x86_64
Code:
root@thebeast:~# alsactl init Found hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Nvidia GPU 92 HDMI/DP" "HDA:10de0092,10438732,00100100" "0x1043" "0x8732" Hardware is initialized using a generic method
Code:

Code:

Code:
root@thebeast:~# pavucontrol
(new window hangs with message "establishing connection to pulse audio")

Code:
jo@Willy:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [PCH            ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
                      HDA Intel PCH at 0xda120000 irq 139
 1 [NVidia         ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
                      HDA NVidia at 0xdc080000 irq 17
The above is my Debian Testing, notice everything goes through Intel, Intel is card 0.
This is not an Optimus system, just boots to either Intel or Nvidia. The above output is while using Nvidia.

OP, why are you doing this as root? Debian is not designed to be run that way!

Your alsamixer output is confusing, but it seems to show that some channels are quiet (00) or muted (MM).

But please, don't be root here.

Also:
Code:
lspci -k | grep -iA5 audio
please.

you can check your hardware like this: https://unix.stackexchange.com/quest...on-card-to-use (just you need a wav file)
