The computer where I am having this problem is a Thinkpad T530 notebook.
I'm not getting sound at all, whether I have the headset plugged in or not.

Until a few days ago it was working without problems. I don't remember
exactly when I started to experience this. If it was after return the
notebook from sleeping state or at some other time.

This notebook does not have any HDMI port.

Thanks for your interest.

Kind regards,
Daniel
