Update on "Audio Card not recognized since last update"

previous post : Audio Card not recognized since last update

We ended up solving it as a dead audio card; it is not dead and audio is back.

The only fix I did was reinstalling “stress-ng” from AUR which wasn’t working ( I had removed some of it’s dependencies while trying to fix the audio problem) and installing wireguard.

I’m certain I didn’t do any other fix in the meantime.

edit: I did unplug my webcam which contains an audio interface. But plugin it back and rebooting doesn’t produce the loss of the motherboard audio again.
