Sound not working after windows update 1803

HP Recommended
P7-1147c / Product number : QU048AAR#ABA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After a win10 (1803) update, my audio stopped working and a red X appeared next to the  speaker icon in the lower right corner of the screen.


I tried to DL drivers from HP:




Both initially gave me an error "This app has been blocked for your protection"


I then put the files in c:\ and ran from Windows Powershell (ADMIN)


I got the driver exe file to run, finally, and clicked through the series of windows that opened to install them. The end result was that my computer "did not meet the requirements to install the drivers". I cannot get that to come back up again and simply need help.


I found another thread that was similar to my issue ( I was hoping an easy solution was to be found like in that thread.
