Audio not playing through internal speakers (HP Envy x360)

I know this is an issue with this audio device specifically but i have an HP envy x360 with an realtek ALC245 audio device. I get no speaker audio but can use my headphones just fine.

I was wondering if there has been any way to make the speakers work? I understand the Linux kernel did not have proper support for this device before but I am not sure if that is different now. I’ve been running in circles trying to figure this out.

Judging from sources on the wide wide web, you picked the wrong laptop for running Linux.

Edit: I’d still advise anyone before buying a laptop to research if it can run Linux well if they want to run it. In some cases that is still a very important issue, as you can see in your own case.
