    If you are getting an error code 1297 when trying to start audio service then follow the procedure as mentioned below:

    -> Type ‘services.msc’ at the start page
    -> Select the option Windows Audio
    -> Now, make sure one thing that Local Service is selected under log on tab
    -> After completing above steps, Go to control panel
    -> Select Administrative Tools and then Local Security Policy
    -> Go to User Rights Assignment after expanding Local Policies
    -> Scroll down the list and see local service is listed or, not. If not listed then double click on Add

    Dear friends..

    Check Audio drives..

    Those are installed properly then

    Check Speakers or Head phones are Properly connected or not..

    Next Check Audio service is started or not..

    Now it will be work..

    Thank you and All the best

    Hi,

    To get out of the problem of muted sound, firstly,

    Check the status of Sound Driver Installed in windows 8, wheather it is active or is there any infringement with any other device.

    Install afresh the Sound Driver file in Windows to get over the trouble.

    Check the condition of the Speakers wheather they are active or not.

    Thank you.
