I've updated drivers for AMD High Def Device and then uninstalled and re-installed it and also High Def Device and Realtek High Def.

 

Still no sound.

 

Any suggestions?

I know it sounds bizarre, but go to Control Panel, open Device Manager, then hit the Scan for Hardware Changes button.

 

Sometimes it is just one piece of plug n' play hardware that somehow gets "undefined" during a major update, that is somewhere in "the pipeline" for a given function that knocks that function out of the water even if the primary device for same looks just fine.

Not a bad idea, but didn't return anything new.

Aha! Stopped and re-started the two Windows Sound services.

 

All is well.
