Audio is not playing through Laptop speakers or wired head phones. But audio plays through Bluetooth head sets, smart TV connected through HDMI cable. Microphone is also working fine.

Realtek drivers updated, windows default driver tried and PC refreshed. Nothing worked

That's a very old Realtek high definition audio driver.

The most current driver for Windows 10 Version 1803 is 6.0.1.8459 which was released on 05-Jun-18.

But while trying to update the driver it says latest driver already installed.

You appear to have a Dell Inspiron 5558 laptop.
What's the 7-character "service tag" number on it?

In Windows 10, type winver in the search box, then press the Enter key.
When the small window appears, advise what the "Version" and "OS Build" numbers are.

You made a typo.
17134.112 is the most current build.

You didn't submit the service tag number, so I can't confirm what audio device your laptop has.
Go into the Device Manager and open the properties window for the audio device, then click the "Details" tab, then select "Hardware Ids" in the list.
Advise what the exact 4-character codes are that follow VEN_ and DEV_ in those strings.
Once that audio device is correctly identified, I should be able to direct you to the Windows 10 driver for it.

Sir, you are right I made a mistake of adding one more 1. Sorry, it's 17134.112

Sir, I just visited the Dell support site and it's screen shot posted above. Shall I go for it?

Yes, that's the Windows 10 64-bit audio driver that's listed for your Dell Inspiron 5558 laptop.
Download and save and then install that audio driver.
After you're done and have restarted, advise if the audio is working okay.

According to those codes, it has a Realtek ALC3234 High Definition Audio device.
According to the Microsoft Update Catalog site, it shows 6.0.1.8447 as the most current Windows 10 64-bit driver for it.
I'm a bit surprised that Windows 10 64-bit didn't allow you to update it.

HERE is the support site that's assigned only to your laptop.
You should add and save this site in your browser's favorites/bookmarks list so you can quickly refer to it as needed.

It appears it originally came with Windows 8.1 64-bit, so I'm going to assume you upgraded it to Windows 10 64-bit.

It does have Realtek ALC3234 high definition audio.
