PC sound not working? I'VE TRIED EVERYTHING

Specs: Windows 10, 8GB RAM, Intel i5 Vpro
Hi, my sound isn't working on my computer and so far I've followed every advice to fix it but nothing has worked. I tried updating, restarting and reinstalling my NVIDA sound drivers but keeping the software installed, and my high definition windows audio and etc drivers. Its not on mute and volume control doesnt even appear, and this problem only started occurring after a windows update on the 15th of Deb, 2018. Might have also been because I somehow damaged the soundcard while carrying it, or because I took out the SSD hard drive while the laptop was still running? Dont know how that would create an issue but im just listing variables.
So what the **** is wrong with my computer's sound??? Currently attempting to reinstall windows (keeping apps and files ofc) but still backing up some of my music. I produce music, so I KIND OF NEED my sound to be working. Headphones/earphones don't work, nothing. The computer registers I have my RODE microphone (showing up as a high definition PnP audio device fro some reason) but in my software it doesn't recognize that I have any audio enabled. I think it must be the update for some reason because clicking on the windows button bottom left doesnt do **** anymore and the search bar isnt working so im having to run many programs through the windows + R commands. (Windows 10).

Kind of desperate so I turned to the first computer forum I could find.
Please help in any way u can. I beseech you.

Just to add: with Tweaking.com I recommend running all recommended pre scan steps, they do help.

Another note: Your audio driver should be from motherboard or (if using) sound card mfg's web site and would indicate the audio chip mfg. name like 'Real' rather than 'NVidia (video) or 'windows audio'.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Are you asking about a Dell Latitude e6410? The Dell site is where to find the drivers. The audio is not NVIDIA, those are the graphics drivers but there's probably audio built-in for HDMI. The driver you need is IDT.

Click here: IDT 92HDxxx HD Audio - direct download

EDIT: the above is for Windows 7. Dell does not have Win10 drivers for the Latitude e6410. Try running Windows Update.

I'm having trouble getting past this "or because I took out the SSD hard drive while the laptop was still running?"

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

Try running Windows Audio Troubleshooter > Try this option by right-clicking on the Sound icon in your taskbar and open the Troubleshooter sound problems option.
