No Audio Output Device is installed

HP Recommended
HP 110-000z
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Couple of months ago my PC lost it's sound.  I have tried the recovery manager, looking online and cannot find a way to get it back.  When I put the mouse over the speaker icon on the bottom right a message comes up:  "No Audio Output Device is installed".  I am at the end of my rope.  The PC has no pci or pci-e slots in it.  I know it was not an expensive computer but it works great other than the sound.  I would like to fix it.  Any Help would be appreciated.

Hi, @RussBG 


Since factory resetting the PC didn't work and the PC has no expansion slots, the only suggestion I can offer would be to try one of those cheap USB audio adapters they sell to fix those kind of issues.
