I found a patch in solus development portal by the developer stalebrim (Jake)
But i can’t test it as i have zero experience with kernel compiling and patching.

Archwiki has similar solution for another HP laptop but with a different kernel fixup option

create a file with a text editor
(any text editor will do, but nano is usually present on any Manjaro DE)

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/mute.conf

add this text to the file

options snd-hda-intel model=hp-mute-led-gpio

save file - Ctrl + O and exit nano - Ctrl + X

then reboot system to load new modprobe option

I think l tried this before but without success.
Anyway, I will try it again and tell you about the results.

I try this but without success.

i did not find your bugzilla report earlier

suggest you get ALSA information

alsa-info.sh --no-upload

and post the data as an attachment to your bugzilla report
kernel developers may need that data to get the proposed patch added to kernel

Thanks, I just did that.
