Built-in speakers in monitor not recognised and not working after updates

So I have experienced this issue with built-in speakers in my monitor not being recognised or not showing in Pulseaudio after updates, probably at least on four separate occasions now. I think that for every time, or at least most recently, after updating the issue was resolved.

What I see now:

This is after I updated recently, where after updating the speakers worked, whereas they didn’t before, and have since stopped working again.

Now, I will update again and see what happens.

I think it’s a driver issue where the audio driver didn’t update, whereas ideally it should after each system update, without having to update an audio driver package separately.

After updating, and restarting, one monitor showed Firefox with previous tabs of one window open, and a blank Manjaro screen on the other monitor. It then froze. This happened again on restarting (via the tty), and again three more times. This is now a new, separate issue, so I’ll move it to another thread.

After updating:

At the moment I can use the browsers, and ALT+TAB between programs, and open up the terminal using CTRL+ALT+T, but the taskbar is missing. Because the taskbar is missing, I obviously can’t do things like switch between virtual desktops, open up programs from the GUI, check if the speakers will show in PulseAudio, etc.
