Using an ASUS TUF FX505GD. My Speakers just stopped working and I think is something to do with my graphics card.

This is what it shows up when I run lspci:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Device 3e10 (rev 07)

And this is what it shows when I run aplay --list-devices:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Would really appreciate some help.

Good news! I found a solution

It seems to be that this is issue is reported in Ubuntu kernel 5.3.0-41 and -42, you can go into details in this Bug report

Anyway the easiest way to fix it is to:

  1. Edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf as root and add options snd-hda-intel dmic_detect=0 at the end of this file by writing this on the terminal:

    echo "options snd-hda-intel dmic_detect=0" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
    
  2. Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf as root and add blacklist snd_soc_skl at the end of the file by writing this on the terminal:

    echo "blacklist snd_soc_skl" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    
  3. Restart the computer
