Audio issues on windows 10 - not sure if hardware or software

Hey all, I was using my audio without issues with speakers connected to the PC. All of a sudden, it started making what I'd describe as a static crackle over the top of the existing audio, which was distorting and ruining all sound on the computer. After I restarted the PC, there was no audio at all. It was saying there's no audio peripheral connected, when the speakers were connected. I tried updating the drivers - didn't help. Tried uninstalling the drivers and restarting the PC - didn't help. Any ideas? I fear it might be a problem with the audio hardware.

Maybe something with the audio hardware has gone wrong. Also before opening the entire system, visit the customer center and ask them to reinstall the drivers because there is a probability that the driver version is not supported or you going wrong somewhere
