No output devices found (Dell Inspiron 14 5420)

Hi everyone, I recently installed Manjaro (stable) on my new laptop (Inspiron 14 5420) and the speakers/audio jack devices are not detected under sound settings (just dummy device). Bluetooth audio is working fine. I also apologize if the solution is obvious, I’m pretty new to linux. TIA

I noticed that ‘Built-in Audio’ is detected under ‘Inactive Cards’ in audio settings with the only available profile being ‘Off’

Also here’s my alsa-info:

you have a relatively new hardware, so it may be not properly supported …
switch to a newer kernel, the 5.18.7 + 5.19.1 - install them from system settings/kernel, reboot and select the 5.18 in the grub menu/ advanced options during boot

also is fast boot disabled in bios - you may not have this option
also fast startup needs to be disabled in windowd if you are dual booting

Updating the kernel to 5.19.1 seems to have fixed it, thank you! :grinning:

System data is not showing any proprietary OS partitions to suggest dual-booting

ALSA data is only showing digital HDMI outputs in **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

A kernel patch for this specific audio codec (Cirrus Logic CS8409 [1028:0ba8] )was signed off in May 2022
ALSA: hda/cs8409: Support new Odin Variants
The patch is available in kernel v5.19
SND_PCI_QUIRK(0x1028, 0x0BA8, “Odin”, CS8409_ODIN),

I suggest removing the modprobe option snd_intel_dspcfg: dsp_driver=1 , or change it to snd_intel_dspcfg: dsp_driver=0 to autodetect drivers

Then install v5.19 kernel:

sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux519 

Or use Manajro Settings Manager > Kernel GUI – manjaro-settings-manager -m msm_kernel

Reboot system to load new kernel and check list of playback devices:

aplay -l
