Sound stopped working 3 days ago

Sound was working OK one day but no the next (no sound at all) The cable is undamaged and connected securely, the speakers (Ext) work. I have not messed about with anything or changed any settings. trying the troubleshooter gives error 80070584 and it fails to work.

bumpkin, I updated [anniversary + creators] on 2 identical brand-new laptops yesterday because I was between a rock and a hard place ;o]. The sound on one of 'em is not working, the other one is ok. I know this doesn't help you here, but I thought I should mention it.Hope you get a solution.

lotvic, what font are you using I can barely read it.

  bumpkin 22:04 11 May 2017

I know this doesn't help you

Anything helps if it gives me clue.

See if there is anything reported in: Control Panel > Security and Maintenance > and under Maintenance click on View reliability history

hope the font is big enough...

Device Manager shows as having no driver. Searching PC and the web gives no result. Direct download from Realtek site will not install giving error code 0x0000FFFF.
