Not working cameras, sound and microphone

Hi, I am in the process of installing Zorin OS on my Lenovo MIIX 320 10ICR with 4GB RAM. Unfortunately, as in:

None of the solutions with me work, as I also have no sound; the microphone does not work and it does not catch the two cameras.

I have absolutely no idea what to do next, I am very green in these matters. I wanted to install Zorin because I was using it on another computer - but there were no problems there.
I would hope for help on how to fix the sound, microphone and cameras.

Thank you in advance and have a nice day!

Can you please create a file in etc/modprobe.d/ to allow for blacklisting a module:

sudo touch /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-audio.conf

Now, open that in a text editor:

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-audio.conf

Add the following line:
blacklist snd_hmdi_lpe_audio
Tap ctrl+o to overwrite, then the enter key to save current configuration. Tap ctrl+x to exist the editor.

Reboot and test sound and mic.

Thank you for your help, but it doesn't help;//
Still no sound and no mic.

I just saw why. There is a typo in it. How embarassing.

This should be:
Add the following line:
blacklist snd_hdmi_lpe_audio

HDMI, not HMDI....

Still nothing:(

Because of course...

I suggest removing that file we created above to ensure it does not conflict with any future attempts.

Lenovo. It has become the most Linux-Unfriendly manufacturer of our time.

Thank you for the effort anyways, I hope there is a solution;//

Yes, I have been searching around. I have seen the same one I suggested earlier posted.
And I have seen nothing else that offers an actual solution.
I have seen a lot of posts and comments about Lenovo being extremely resistant to provide for the Open Source drivers.

Which is concerning. But we will keep looking.

I even tried install both Core and Lite versions - but in both the same problem.

Would you mind sharing the output of lshw -c display.

Many sound cards are part of the video card anymore and this may be a video driver issue.

It wouldn't hurt to also provide the output of lshw -c multimedia.



This link only mentions what we tried already:

This thread solved the issue - but it turned out to be a hardware issue:
