I had the same problem with this computer running Fedora 21 and Gnome shell at 3840x2160.

That was not the whole problem as I see now. You see, after the re-installation of the alsa drivers, there was no 'sound indicator' in the system tray.

Finally, Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! ;-) Could you ...

I too had this problem on an Asus Zenbook after an upgrade. Then I noticed that it was only for my main account on the machine, but if I logged in with another account it was OK. In the end this solved it for me: mv ~/.config/dconf/user ~/.config/dconf/user-back (I only used mv in case of any disaster it might cause.) Rebooted, and all was well.
