I have absolutely no sound. I've uploaded new audio devices several times. I've gone through the HP troubleshooting, updated the BIOS. Ran all the tests. Still nothing. I've watched all the videos on problem solving, read the websites ... still nothing. I've spent days trying to get the sound back as I am taking online classes that require sound. I'm getting really frustrated. This all happened after the Windows update and nothing that has been suggested is working. I have an HP Spectre x360, with the Bang & Olufsen sound. (Yes, I've tried with the Equalizer and still nothing.) I just downloaded the driver from the HP site that was for my notebook and still nothing.

Did you check with alternate headphones or external speakers? if not, please do!
While you respond to that, here's what you need to know:
Audio devices might need to be disconnected from the computer during the troubleshooting process.
Always follow manufacturer instructions for disconnecting USB devices from the computer. Some USB devices must be turned off and/or ejected before they are disconnected from the computer. Some other USB devices support the Windows Safely Remove Hardware feature.
