My new laptop’s onboard speakers have been randomly cutting in and out.
The events happen with relative frequency, and make listening to anything with the speakers impossible. Wired headphones are unaffected.
This seems to be a software issue, not a hardware one, as
yes xyz | aplay renders a contiguous auditory experience. I’ve tried switching from pulse to pipewire, but the issue persisted without change.
Any idea what’s going on?
