I have been getting my new computer set up the past day and then had to reboot for a system update. Ever since then there is no audio out of my laptop speakers or aux audio either. Both were working up until this reboot. Any ideas?

@BuckhornArt Greetings from the HP Community!
- Have you attempted to update the BIOS, Video card & Audio drivers to resolve this issue?
- If not, here's the link to download and install the above updates: Click here
While you respond to that, here's what you need to do:
Step 1: Right-click on the Start button in the taskbar area and then click Device Manager to open the same.
Step 2: In the Device Manager, expand Sound, video and game controllers.
Step 3: You should now see your audio driver name. Most likely you have Realtek High Definition Audio, Right-click on it and then click Uninstall device option.
Step 4: You will now get the following confirmation dialog. Select Delete the driver software for this device checkbox and then Yes button when you see the confirmation dialog to go ahead and uninstall the device driver.
Restart your PC once & it should auto-reinstall a working driver.
If the issue with the sound continues, The best way to resolve the issue is by using the HP Guided Troubleshooter:
