Dual-booting Windows and Linux Mint an HP laptop. Audio working fine for a day or so. Other person who uses the computer booted into Windows and made something in Paint.NET, once I booted back into Mint, audio stopped playing out of the built-in speakers.
Pavucontrol lists the device, and even shows the volume spike when I'm playing sounds, but it just doesn't go through to the hardware. This now leads me to believe that it's more of a hardware/driver issue than a software problem that restarting audio services will fix.
Result of inxi -A:
Audio Device-1: Intel Sunrise Point-LP HD Audio driver: snd_hda_intel Sound server: ALSA v: k5.4.0-48-generic
Fixes that have failed:
- restarting pulseaudio
- reinstalling pulseaudio
- force reloading ALSA
Please help, I have online school tomorrow (but I guess I can use the proprietary garbage that is Windows if I really have to.)
