Thanks, but I have tried that several times.
I downloaded that exact Intel Driver and support assistant, and it said my graphics and audio were up to date (though it did update an (i think) disk driver). I updated the nVidia drivers. I then manually downloaded the intel drivers and installed them again. Then ran the support assassinate to make sure it was still good.
I told Device manager to uninstall the two graphics drivers one at a time. I was nervous as heck when I told it to uninstall them both at the SAME time. I have done every combination of update and uninstall I can think of.
But device manager thinks that everything is fine. And the Sound Playback says "no audio devices are installed".
I mean most of the things I have been reading say that doing that should fix it. But it does not.
And once again, It was working for months, and then an update comes along and suddenly it does not work.

Is the yellow exclamation mark still next to your Intel High Definition Audio? If yes, right click, select properties, and under the Details tab select Hardware IDs in the dropdown box. Copy and Paste the first line into your next post.

I had the exact same issue as you, right down to the 'Intel High Definition Audio' switching to the 'Intel Display Audio' driver. What worked for me was, weirdly enough, downloading a Realtek audio driver off the website. I'm not sure if it'll work for you (I'm running a HP Pavilion laptop), but it might be worth trying some trial-and-error sound driver downloads. It might be better to contact your computer's manufacturer directly because they should be able to direct you to the correct driver you need.
For what it's worth, once I installed the Realtek driver, the 'Intel High Definition Audio' completely disappeared (making it something of a red herring?). The only two audio drivers I have running at the moment are the 'Intel Display Audio' and the 'Realtek High Definition Audio' which are both under the 'Sound, video and games controllers' section. I'm guessing that the Windows update deleted my original audio driver and installed the wrong one, which it then failed to recognise.

I have an HP laptop with exactly the same problem:
On top of the obvious windows "fix the problem" options, I tried to reinstall the graphics driver (from the intel website, using the "detected" hardware link) as there is no separate audio driver. No joy! Still they yellow exclamation mark. since it follows the windows update, it must be the cause and they're bound to be releasing a fix soon no doubt!

Hi, just to follow on from JohnC21's post we can automate this and get a little bit more info.
Press the win +x keys together, select Poweshell(admin) from the options. copy the below cmd and right click anywhere in the powershell window the cmd will append to the prompt, press enter.

Hi, we were heading that way. we needed to be sure you had the right drivers, and windows itself recognized the card, otherwise the manual install doesn't work, glad you got it sorted.

Thank you so much! I had an important call to answer yesterday and I wasn't able to answer it, so I had to catch up on what I missed today. This totally helped my audio problem, and it was even simpler than what HP and other sites had to offer. Thank you again!
