Deaf on Endeavour

Hello friends and Linux Companions. I recently have been experiencing the “Deafness” where I can’t hear anything on my desktop. I want any ideas from scratch, though I have tried Uninstalling and Reinstalling “Pipe Pulse and Pavu” just as a rough idea. There was also a old post on the forum that said to Simply shutdown and reload Into Linux rather than rebooting into linux from windows. This also didn’t fix my issue. Any ideas?

Did you recently connect your PC to speakers or a TV?

This is what I came up with

KDE supports deaf people, there is “Visual bell” in KDE setting → Accessibilty → Bell → Enable “Visual bell” → Enable “Flash”. That is like a notification popup, only your eyes can see.

Gnome supports it too, Settings → Accessibility → Enable “Visual Alerts”

This is the wrong kind of Deafness. I’m not Literally deaf My os has no sound. (Explained in Description)
