Installed Zorin 16 Pro and had no issues with sound originally. Using a 2021 Dell XPS 17 9710. Everything was working fine after install. And then had an emergency and needed to plug the laptop to power and at the time my only option was a docking station. Plugged it in and when the battery capacity was at full I removed the USB-C from the laptop and that's when I lost sound. at first sound in settings was showing dummy output I think. I tried some troubleshooting steps from this site:
However, this did not help. I can plug in a USB-C headphone and that ends up working, however, I am getting no sound from the laptop speakers.
Hoping there's a way to reset the sound configuration back to default.
What's crazy is that I also have an XPS 15 running Zorin core 16 Beta and that has no issues reverting back to the default sound output device, so not sure what is going on with the XPS 17.
Any help provided is appreciated.
