Windows just automatically updated and now it seems that I can no longer hear the sounds or Music when editing my videos in Premiere Elements 15. Is there a way to fix this? I loaded older video edits and they didn't play either. (Yes, I had the sound on, both in the program as well as with the computer).

There have been a few posts over several months with the same question. The fix has been to adjust the settings in the Edit>Preferences>Hardware screen. The choices appear to vary with different computers and Windows update apparently can either change them or not change them correctly. Whatever you have, try other choices. Below is a screen shot for reference.
I was trying to fix the audio in the audio output section but yours did the trick. Thanks for that!
I'm happy you got it fixed!
Thank You whsprague!!! You rock!! I was getting ready to uninstall and reinstall it in hopes it would work. Glad I checked here first. Saved me a ton of time..
I also have had problems since updating windows. I have never had audio problems until this install. I have NO audio at all. On my Preferences>Audio Hardware settings my default input says "No Input". I click on the down arrow but there are no other choices. My default output and master clock both say "Speakers/Headphones". What do I do to get audio?
This totally worked for me. I hadn't used the program since the Windows update, so it really threw me when no sound played. But this suggestion got it working perfectly. Thanks!
Here's what worked for me (I'm on latest Windows 10 build with RealTek HD Audio drivers):
Before I did this, I also downloaded and installed the latest RealTek drivers from here, but I don't know if it was required:
