    Did you install any new hardware or applications just before noticing the audio not working?

    If not, run System Restore.
    System Restore Windows 10

    If not, you may need to manually reset the audio service, to do this, follow the steps provided in this video tutorial.

    Still nothing, try the steps provided here in this video tutorial.
