Manjaro KDE audio not working

So yesterday I broke my manjaro installation beyond repair. So I had no choice but to reinstall it today. I backed up my data to my windows partition and reinstalled manjaro. Once I set everything up I realised the audio isnt working at all. But it works when I plug in Headphones. I followed guides on the forum with similar problems and now my headphones also dont work now. I went to audio settings and for output I get headphones and Speaker(unavailable) Please help I dont want to reinstall again…

Here is the input of

EDIT: I switched to testing branch and I think the problem got worse. Now when I click the audio button it says “No output or input devices found” and pavu control has a dummy control

EDIT 2: All Sound related settings have dissapeared after reboot. pls help :frowning:

The Modprobe option you added is no longer supported by kernel v5.8

!!Modprobe options (Sound related)

snd_hda_intel: dmic_detect=0

If you wish to continue to disable internal digital microphone, edit the file in /etc/modprobe.d/
and change the modprobe option to this:

options snd-intel-dspcfg dsp_driver=1

But it may now be possible get internal microphone working :

  1. remove ‘dmic_detect=0’ modprobe option
  2. install sof-firmware
  3. install development version of Pulseaudio pulseaudio-git from AUR

Thanks so much for the help. But it still didnt fix the issue. Its been 6 hours I tried everything on the internet and now I gave up. I just reinstalled manjaro. works like charm and takes 10 minutes.
