    Check start/control panel/sound.
    Make sure the right output device is set as default.
    Updating sound drivers can the default device to change,
    especially considering that your video card has onboard sound.
    That is probably why you have audio on the HDMI.

    First make sure your audio drivers are correct, go to device manager and make sure your drivers are correct and updated. (I like to use a program called Driver Genius to do this for me, but I don't know if they have a free version, and I wouldn't trust any free driver update programs -seriously)

    As a last resort you could try system restore to before the update and see if that fixes it, if you have Windows 7 just search System Restore in the search bar..

    If that works then set Windows Update to download automatically but ask you to install the updates, then look at the updates and uncheck anything that has anything to do with audio drivers or anything like that. If there are no audio updates then I would recommend installing the updates one at a time to see what caused your sound to die.
