Upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 and lost all sound

MR ZenWiz
I just finished upgrading Xubuntu 18.04 to 20.04 and all system sound
is gone.  According to pavucontrol, I only have Dummy Output and HDMI
(which is not connected and reports as unplugged).

My speakers are not detected, nor is the built in sound - speakers and
microphone.

I also keep getting a "System problem is reported" and I send the
problem report, but I have no idea what it is.

Where do I look first?

I cannot do without sound on this laptop (HP 8740w).  It was working
perfectly before the upgrade.

Thanks, I hope.

Mark

Here's what lspci shows for audio - AFAICT there is no real HDMI
device on the machine:

19:45 [admar@marHP8740w:~] $ lspci | grep -i audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset
High Definition Audio (rev 06)
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GK106 HDMI Audio Controller (rev a1)

There's also this, which I'm not sure what to make of:

19:47 [admar@marHP8740w:~] $ dmesg | grep -i audio
[    0.144386] ACPI: Added _OSI(Linux-Lenovo-NV-HDMI-Audio)

sudo lshw -c audio produces nothing.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

I'm not sure why or how, but t's back in full.

I unplugged the speakers from the earphone jack and rebooted.

Very strange, but I'm thrilled it's now working.
