No sound from speakers (LAPTOP)

I often suffer from sound problems in my laptop in garuda. my hardware is totally ok (it works compleatly fine in windows). once my speakers wern't producing any sound (THE SOUND ICON WAS NOT SHOWING ETHER) and videos were not playing i rebooted and reseted all the configs and it got back normal but this time in the latte dock panel, the sound icon is showing but only the mike, volume controller isn't showing . i thought it was my speaker's fault but the worked for windows. and i hope it is not any kind of driver problem. i did't make any mess except i played a game on wine last night and garud maintenance thing popuped few times and failed

please help, i have online class tomorrow :frowning_face: :frowning_face: :frowning_face:

Many solved their audio problems with this kind of all in one script.

Inxi -Faz missing...


Your system is hella out of date.
You gotta do sudo bash -c ". <(wget -qO-"
You should do this before doing @filo's suggestion.
Make sure it completed successfully.


thanks man,
now i can do my online class :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

guys i am still suffering
i am not able to use the inbuilt audio

Careful, you booted from a snapshot.
You should "confirm" the restore in the timeshift GUI and reboot.
Then you can do anything else, e.g. you could check if the fix of yesterday is still there...
and maybe update

since we are at 5.15.4 today.


yes i am updating my system

After updating. if its still not showing inbuilt speakers.

Right click volume icon. Go to configure audio devices. There you might find show inactive devices. Just enable it. or in other case it will be under profile dropdown .it will be set to off mode just change it to analog stereo.


still not helping
it even got worse, after updating the system, the latte dock disappered,i thought reboothing in an option but n the grub menu it is showing an new arch distro but i only have garuda and win10, anyways after garuda got my speakers runninng but after conecting to bluetooth it disappeared again! and my garuda always froze at the sweet theme splash screen some how i managed to log and cleared all the configs
anyways welcome to the forum @CZEKOSHAR

ok so i found a solution to this problem and that is to run sudo alsactl store
worked completly for me


ok now it is not working again

I'm using an Acer Swift 1 laptop and I had no sound output, neither through nor built in speakers nor headphone.
I found No Audio on Acer Swift 3 - #2 by bogdancovaciu - Sound - Manjaro Linux Forum and No sound after full-upgrade | Sound Problem | Acer Swift Laptop | Linux | ParrotOS - YouTube which gave the same advice, which worked for me too.
Create or add to the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and add these two lines:
options snd-hda-intel dmic_detect=0
options snd-hda-intel model=laptop-amic enable=yes

... then reboot.

The first line is to enable the speaker, the second for the internal microphone.
