    Unable to fix sound related issue in windows 7

    My computer had lost sound and speaker icon shows a red cross icon on it. I have run troubleshooting as well which shows an error "Audio Device is Disabled". I have also checked "Sound" setting in the control Panel where the default device is "Headphones-High Definition Audio". Everything looks fine but still sound is not working. Do you have any idea,How to fix it?

    To solve this issue, make sure that "Windows Audio" and "Windows Audio Endpoint Builder" services are running on your computer. If these services are not running then follow the below given steps to do the same:
    First of all click on "Start" button and then write "Services" on start search box and hit enter.
    Now right click on "Services" and then click on "Run as Administrator". Your computer can ask for the confirmation password.Simply enter your Administrator password.
    Now in Services Window locate the option "Windows Audio" and double click on it.
    Now check whether the Startup type is set to "Automatic" and Service status has been started .
    Follow very similar steps to Run "Windows Audio Endpoint Builder" service.
    If the same problem persists then update your driver to the latest version.It will fix your issue.

    Re: Unable to fix sound related issue in windows 7

    Hi,

    Your computer needs to activate a couple of services which have stopped working due to reasons unknown.

    "Windows Audio" and "Windows Audio Endpoint Builder" services are the services to be activated.

    Click "Start" > type "Services" inthe search box > "Enter" > Right click "Services" > click "Run as Administrator" > enter your Administrator password > double click "Windows Audio" > Set Startup type to "Automatic".

    Similarly Run "Windows Audio Endpoint Builder" service.

    If the problem persists then update your driver by going to :
    Start>Control Panel>System and security>Device Manager>sound video....>Driver>uninstall> then Update Driver.

    This will fix your issue.

    thanks.
