No audio on newly installed OS - HP


I am facing audio problem in my newly installed Manjaro KDE Plasma OS. I have setup a dual boot system along with Windows 11 OS. The following are some of the basic information related to my system.


Running the inxi -Fazy code, I am getting the following result.

  Device-1: Intel Cannon Lake PCH cAVS vendor: Hewlett-Packard
    driver: snd_hda_intel v: kernel alternate: snd_soc_skl,snd_sof_pci_intel_cnl
    bus-ID: 00:1f.3 chip-ID: 8086:a348 class-ID: 0403
  Device-2: NVIDIA GP107GL High Definition Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
    v: kernel pcie: gen: 1 speed: 2.5 GT/s lanes: 8 link-max: gen: 3
    speed: 8 GT/s lanes: 16 bus-ID: 01:00.1 chip-ID: 10de:0fb9 class-ID: 0403
  Sound API: ALSA v: k6.1.12-1-MANJARO running: yes
  Sound Server-1: JACK v: 1.9.22 running: no
  Sound Server-2: PulseAudio v: 16.1 running: yes
  Sound Server-3: PipeWire v: 0.3.65 running: no

In Windows 11, RealTek is my audio driver. For some reason, Manjaro is using NVIDIA GP107GL as the audio device.
Running the mhwd -lh -d --pci gives me the following result about my realtek.

your problem might be caused by your HP machine’s hardware; I’ve had two HP Laptops and they caused various problems with Linux distros, be it WiFi card not working, Fn keys not working, etc.; HP seems to run fine only with the M$ OS
