Try with lts kernel and see if issue persists?

sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers

then while booting from grub screen goto advanced options → select linux-lts

IF this works make linux-lts the default kernel you boot with using garuda boot options GUI.

If this doesn’t help try downloading

sudo pacman -S alsa-utils

and check using


that all output sounds are maxed when you are facing the audio issue and that nothing is mute.

Also make sure that correct sound card is selected while this issue is happening,

Thanks 4 ur desire 2 help.

And please, stop writing slang, many of our users need a translation app (like me), plus you can edit your post until someone replies.
It’s unnecessary and just bloats the topic.
Thank you :slight_smile: and

garuda welcome 2

The ‘swoosh’ indicates you need to reboot. Do so, then fix your failed units.
