    There should still be a device perhaps it's disconnected for some reason so it doesn't show up by default and would appear grayed out.

    Let's see here it's a command-line parameter so something like right clicking on the start menu and selecting the command line with administrative rights.

    set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
    devmgmt.msc

    And then also in there go to view and show hidden devices. :)
    Might show up under a otherwise hidden branch as a bit of a question mark looking device just needing the drivers to be identified and activated after a reboot.
    ("Other devices." I think is what it's called, hidden by default.)

    Should be a unknown device you can add the Realtek audio driver for, not sure why it removes those though unless DDU can also clean (Should be optional?) Realtek devices.
    Either point it to the drivers you have and update from there or get the latest generic version from Microsoft.
    (The AMD HDMI Audio component / NVIDIA Audio component I can see but not sure why it'd remove the Realtek stuff and if you did that check so it didn't uninstall other supported components as well if you ran it with no parameters for what to clean importantly the motherboard chipset drivers specifically.)

    6.0.9071.1
    https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=6.0.9071.1

    This is a generic Realtek HD Audio driver though without the vendor specific extras so if that's what you need the motherboard website usually has a driver that works for that purpose. :)


    If this doesn't lead to any device showing up restart first and then you can do this possibly also scanning for a device update via the device manager and if Windows Update driver updating is active it'll probably pull something.
    I prefer updating to what latest available driver I can find but either method should work to restore the device status.


    EDIT: Taking out and plugging back in the audio device cable can also get it active and then you can get the driver update going as well, there's a couple of methods so it's not too problematic usually.

    Dear AMD users with AMD chipset and CPU.
    It has come to my attention that some of you *may* had issues with their chipset drivers being removed by DDU.
    I have released version 18.0.3.8 today in a hope that the issue mentioned above is fixed
    If someone who had the issue want to share with me if the new version fixes the issue and if not, would be willing to work a little with me to fix this, I would appreciate.
    Thanks,

    Hi!

    I have significant issues, am I likely to resolve them via DDU? Not sure where should I look manually to fix these, or why they are broken in the first place:
    • Old DX games not starting: They were working on windows 8 and what I see online they should work on 10 as well. Examples:
      • Desperados, which was upgraded to work well, not long ago. But even in its original form it ran, only with horrible performance. Now I only get an empty screen
      • No One Lives forever. It was patched by third parties to be playable and it was, but it also ran in its original form with performance issues and glitches. Now it throws errors:
        One when clicking on the display options in the launcher, the other when I try to launch.

    I use dgVoodoo2 wrapper to run old (DirectX < 9) games on Windows 10.

    I had WineD3D dlls to run the game, but it stopped working. NOLF has its own (patched?) dlls, but also doesn't work. Nor the these the unpatched game, which used to run.
