Audio problem

Suddenly this morning my computer has no audio. Except for the music that plays when Windows starts and shuts down. None of the media players or tones associated with pop-ups have audio. Nero player gives me the message "Unable to playback audio. No sound device detected on your system". I ripped a cd to the hard drive, burned it back to disc and put the burned disc in a cd player and played fine so drives are reading audio ok.
My computer is set to update Windows automatically when I shutdown. There was an update last night, just coincidence? Everything was fine last night, I shut down, windows updates, start up this morning, no audio.

If you go into Device Manager, what does it show under Sound, Video and Game Controllers? Any exclamation points or question marks?

I went into Control Panel, under Sound and Audio Devices

Volume- No Audio Device
Audio-Sound playback>Default Device>No Playback Device

No exclamation points or question marks? Did I look the right place?

What exactly is this "Sound Device" that is not working properly?
