Following a notification that I had a number of drivers which were 'very old' I updated them.
 As a result I have lost the following hardware, which are not detected as being installed:
 1. The battery --- there is no battery power
 2. Sound ---- there are no audio devices
 3. The webcams --- no camera or video devices are detected
 What must I do to get them back?
 Windows 10 with November update, 2-in-1 Tablet

Was this a Windows 10 notice or from other software? Have you tried doing a system restore?

Try a system restore to earlier point before updates.
