Installing 16.91 disables audio

I just installed the most recent driver 16.9.1 and it disables all my audio from games, windows media player, and system sounds. I uninstalled with DDU and reinstalled it...same thing happens, no audio. I uninstalled  with DDU and while my computer reaches the desktop, the screen goes black then come back and for a few seconds, there is a system dialogue box that says something about installing an audio driver. Then after I install 16.8.3 audio comes back and there are no problems. Is there a possibility that installing the latest driver uninstalls or deletes some audio driver for me? Any suggestions? I am currently running 16.8.3 again.
