    No Sound after upgrade to windows 10


    It's been over a year, I periodically google to try and fix it but cant get sound back.
    Please ask any info you need and please help me get my sound back.
    Have a Dell Inspiron desktop, previously was vista which was upgraded to 10.

    Did you do a clean install of Windows 10? You can't upgrade straight to Windows 10 from Vista.

    Press the Windows and "R" keys simultaneously, type "devmgmt.msc" into the "Run" box and click "OK". Expand "Sound, video and game controllers", right-click the sound device, select "Update driver", click "Browse my computer for driver software", then "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer". If one is found, install it. You may have to restart the computer for the change to take effect.

    In Device manager there is no option saying "Sound, video and game controllers"
    the closest is under "other devices" it has "audio device on high definition audio bus" it has one of those caution cones on it, that there a problem. Ive tried downloading drivers.
    In searching my computer it doesn't find any drivers.
    In updating from the web it downloads then comes up. "Windows found drivers but encountered an error while attempting to install them" "real tech high definition audio" "this operation requires an interactive window station" "if you know the manufacturer of your device you can visit their website and check the support section for drivers"
