I've had Windows 10 on my laptop for a while, but just today my audio completely cut out. It worked perfectly up until today, and I don't think there was any significant change or update, so I'm not sure why it stopped working. I followed all of the steps in the sound problem troubleshooter and I've tried updating and reinstalling the drivers, but nothing has changed. The audio works fine through headphones, which makes me think it's an issue with the speakers.
In addition, there are several updates appearing in the Windows Update menu and its "View installed update history" section that say they need a restart to install, but I have restarted several times and these have not installed. One of these is "2018-01 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x64-based Systems (KB4058258)." I tried the Windows Update troubleshooter, but to no success.
I'm mostly concerned with the audio problems. Does anyone have suggestions or recommendations for these issues?
