This seems to be a running issue with ChromeOS / Linux, but after trying to install several OS's on this laptop, not a single one gets any sound whatsoever.
I've currently tried the commonly suggested fix of running Alsamixer and un-muting any components.
The sound cards I can see in Alsamixer are;
x - Default (CRAS)
x0 - Intel hdmi/dp lpe audio
x1 - bytcr-rt5651
x0 has no sound controls, x1 has a whole host of settings that takes about 5 minutes to go through and unmute / set a higher volume , and doesn't seem to save after doing so anyway. x has a normal volume slider, but remains with no sound.
I've also tried a menagerie of different fixes through the terminal, none have worked. I'm not very hopeful for a fix, but if anyone knows the exact process of steps that gets this laptop working with sound then I'm sure it's not just myself who would be grateful.
