[Solved] No sound on Dell xps 9315

Hi, normally EndeavourOS works seamlessly out of the box on a Dell xps. I just bought the latest model and have some issues.

Firstly, there is no sound. This is the output of inxi -Aa

  Device-1: Intel vendor: Dell driver: N/A bus-ID: 00:05.0 chip-ID: 8086:465d
class-ID: 0480
  Device-2: Intel vendor: Dell driver: sof-audio-pci-intel-tgl
    alternate: snd_hda_intel,snd_sof_pci_intel_tgl bus-ID: 00:1f.3
    chip-ID: 8086:51cc class-ID: 0401
  Sound Server-1: ALSA v: k5.18.16-arch1-1 running: yes
  Sound Server-2: PulseAudio v: 16.1 running: no
  Sound Server-3: PipeWire v: 0.3.56 running: yes

Any solutions?

Try loading these modules on at a time, check the output of inxi -aA to see if they get loaded and the sound works.

For how to load a kernel module manually:

Neither seems to change the status of the sound devices.

Used modprobe snd_hda_intel and modprobe snd_sof_pci_intel_tgl

How about this one:

sudo modprobe sof-audio-pci-intel-tgl
