I'm looking for advice on how to completely reinstall all packages related to sound output and how to reset all relevant settings. I'm experiencing a particularly weird problem (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1428018), that I haven't been able to find a solution for. So, my logic here is to reset everything and hope whatever was causing the issue goes away in the process.

The procedure that I'm looking for, is the same procedure that Ubuntu performs on its own, when installing a fresh copy of the distro. I'm guessing it will consist of removing some packages and their settings' files, then re-installing and configuring them, but I don't know which packages I need to target and how I should configure them afterward.

Any help would be welcome.
