My friend called me yesterday as he was facing the problem of Audio not working on his computer. On being asked he told that by mistake he disabled all the services of the computer (Quite stupid, I know). But he was having a hard time to solve that problem as the services were not starting again and gave an error message each time.
Disabling the service included disabling the Windows Audio Service that resulted in audio of the system not working. Nor installing the audio drivers again solved the problem, neither restoring the system to an earlier time.
So if you also want to re-enable the Windows Audio service then try this fix:
1. Windows Audio Service is dependent on the Plug and Play service of the computer and you will see that disabling the Windows Audio Service also disabled the Plug and Play service.
2. So the solution is quite simple and is to just enable the Plug and Play service before the Windows Audio Service.
3. Type services.msc in the Run box to open the Services running in the system.
4. Enable the “Plug and Play” service before any other.
5. Now start the “Windows Audio Service” which will start without any errors this time.
You may require rebooting, but the sound has been enabled for sure.
