      Thanks for the read.

      It seems my laptop's audio/sound driver was removed from a Microsoft update. My attempt to find the missing driver failed as the laptop's manufacture no longer exists. I also purchased multiple search-and-find missing drivers products that did not work either.

      As a result, I'm looking for a solution to get sound back.

      Anything else that would be helpful to know?

        There are many, many USB sound options. You'll need one of those and a speaker set. Questions: Do you want it to be self contained with sound, are you willing to build, are you really willing to build with electronics, what kind of sound are you looking for... all that.

          Hard to believe that a (compatible) driver can't be found ...

          Too long ago to run a "System Restore" ?

            Plug & Play would be best. Sound quality not so important. I mostly use this laptop for short instructional videos.

            I've seen a bunch of USB adapters, but it seems they require plug-in speakers.

            Since this is laptop, is there a solution that doesn't require the addition of speakers?

              There no way to pipe it back into the laptop speakers, so you'll need something external that has built in speakers and the USB interface. Google USB speakers. It looks like a Logitech S150 would do it.

                Restoring the computer to before the event is one option. What is the make, model, and approximate year of the laptop?

                  Your search criteria helped. Much better results using "USB speakers".

                      In web searches, I found no references to "Irula" brand of laptops, conputers.

                      I did find an "iRulu" brand.

                        The first search result is me CCinPA

                        I had worked with Microsoft and they gave me the same link to do that download. Did not work.

                        Other stuff like "Dangerous Website Blocked"

                        I have also purchased a few products that were suppose to located the missing drivers and install... No good.

                          When you go into the control panel and select Hardware and Sound > Sound what shows up as the playback device?

                            A bluetooth dongle (if not built in) plus bluetooth speaker might be a portable modestly priced solution.

                            In your position I would boot into linux and have a look at the devices recognised and not recognised. Don't need to touch the installed Windows just create a bootable USB stick (or DVD/CD if decades old). If the sound works then it is very likely to be fixable in Windows by following the relevant chips and their windows drivers.
