Realtek high definition audio sound card

Hello,
I inherited an Ultra tower. My sound was working fine, CDs, Youtube, library, etc. All of a sudden when I put a music CD in the pc's DVD/CD/ROM drive, the drive can read what's on the CD but can no longer play it. Get a msg that there is no sound device. Everything I troubleshoot thru the control panel and device manager says I have no sound device, even though it says my realtek high definition audio is working, there's no default available, no sound device found. Even tried updating the realtek driver. Does this mean the sound card has stopped working? or has a controller stopped working? should I pull out the soundcard and push it back in? (if I can figure which it is)
help

  1. Already tried it. Says: No Audio Device
    Won't let me choose anything at all...
  2. If it's onboard audio it's on a chip and is therefore not a soundcard.
