Got a new laptop last week and have been dying to try out Zorin OS,
Everything has work out great except that I have no sound at all!
I tried a couple of suggestions from the forum and also from different generic ubuntu threads online but to no good, I tried so many suggestions i dont even know what i tried in the end. I also tried Live-CD (No sound), wiped everything and installed Ubuntu 20.04 (No sonud), wiped everything and installed Windows (came preloaded originally) - Yey sound… Bleh. Windows… Well at least its nyt a physical issue.
Now i’m back on a fresh install of Zorin OS (Core) with dummy output! Any pointers on where to start troubleshoting this sound issue?
Adding output from inxi

Could the issue be that Zorin detects another “sound card”… NVIDIA?
