No Audio Output device installed

Hi Everyone. I am at a total loss as to what is going on with my computer. I am getting no sound what so ever. My computer randomly restarted last night and now I have no audio. I am getting an error  " No Audio Output device installed". I have ran the diagnotic tool and get the error that Realtek has a driver issue. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing works. I keep getting a code 10 from Realtek. Does anyone have any advice?
