No sound on Manjaro

Well, I’ve been testing differents OS like Ubuntu, Pop OS, Kubuntu, Manjaro and right now I’m using Zorin 16 core and I’ve decided to use Manjaro Gnome but I’ve had the same problem in any distribution of Linux I have no sound, I only have sound when the kernel 5.4 is running so my question is

Is there a problem if I use a old kernel like 5.4 on Manjaro?
Can I fix that problem on manjaro using a new 5.10?

here are some info about my PC

No, it’s still fully supported and gets regular safety updates. You can check this in #announcements.

Try to install it in addition and boot into it to verify it.

What is that?? :thinking: and how can I run?? I just installed it but I don’t find it

It’s not something you run, it will either fix your sound or it won’t. Try restarting and test your sound.
