How to fix no audio output device is installed

I recently updated my laptop, not sure what update it was but after that I have been having a red X symbol at the sound option and it says no audio output device is installed. When i right click and see under play back devices it says no audio devices installed where the speaker option should be. I've read troubleshooting the sound problems but it always says it can't find the problem. Even after I've installed the latest sound drives it doesn't work. I don't know what to do.

Where are you seeing that? A screenshot might be useful.
Which version of Windows are you using?
