So, I am new to Linux in general.
I have an HP Pavilion x360 notebook and I wanted to make the step from Windows to Linux.
Because I still sometimes need Windows for work related stuff, I made a dual boot on my notebook with Windows 10 and Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon.
Everything works great, except for 1 thing: sound.
Audio works fine through headphones, just not through the speakers.
I followed the steps I found on the webpage https://itsfoss.com/fix-sound-ubuntu-1304-quick-tip/ and it did solve the issue finally.
I powered the notebook off and powered it back on the next day, and booted to Windows 10 for work.
I had audio through the speakers in Windows all day without problems.
After work was done, I rebooted to Linux Mint, and no audio is coming out of the speakers.
I connected headphones to test, and that is working fine.
I disconnected the headphones, but still no audio from the speakers.
So it has been working for just one evening.
I performed the steps from the website again, but this time it did not fix my audio issues.
Does anyone have some additional steps I could do to get it working again?
After reading the “Read before you post” here is some additional information
