Sound keys not working Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen8

Hello, im pretty new using Manjaro and Linux in general.
My sound did not work out of the box, so i had to follow the instructions shown in the arch wiki article about my laptop model, i had to open the terminal and run the alsamixer to configure it manually, but still, if i want to lower the volume i need to open the alsamixer again, as i cannot change it with the F Keys at the top of my keyboard, i cant even change the volume using the little board at the top bar of my desk, and everytime i restart the computer, it starts muted again (even the mute led is on), so i have to open the alsa mixer to activate the sound everytime i boot my computer i just need to know if there is a way to solve this issue permanently (im pretty sure there is lol) hope you can help me, thanks in advance.
