Hi Everyone,

I have an HP Chromebook 11 G4 Chromebook. Chrome OS is EOL, Followed instructions from Neverware, and updated bios, and now can install pretty much any OS I choose.  I choose Linux Lite, due to it working so well for me in the past. The problem lies where I have no sound. The card comes up as "Dummy"  It is an Intel Card. I try Aplay and says it dont exist. PulseAudio dont do to much either. I will attach information I captured in settings on the hardware I am using, and the messages I get.  To help, I have tried several different versions of Linux, Ubuntu, Debian,Fedora, and of course Linux Lite. The only one that actually gives me sound is Fedora.  But it is so low you have to put the laptop speaker next to your ear to hear it. Sound worked perfectly on regular chrome os.  Spent a lot of time on this, and I actually have three more of these of the same chromebook, I need to do.  I appreciate your help.

Jeff
