Hardware Realtek doesn't show up in Device Manager

So the problem started today, when a red cross mark appeared on my sound icon. Apparently, no audio output device was installed. After searching for a bit, I found my microphone and the Realtek High Definition Audio Controller in System Information under Problem Devices. I also created a DxDiag file and uploaded it here. I have no idea what to do from here.

All help is appreciated!

Also Driver Easy says that Realtek High Definition Audio is unplugged.
