The Audio Service Is Not Running RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have an Asus running Windows 8 that I got less than a year ago.  Recently, I've been getting an error when trying to play audio.  It tells me that "The Audio Service is not running."  When I troubleshoot it tells me that "one or more audio service isn't running," and when I hover over it for more information it tells me that Windows Audio and/or Windows Audio Endpoint Builder are not running.  I went into services to try to fix it myself.

    First I tried to start Windows Audio Services but it told me it couldn't be started.

    the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) seemed to be working.

    the Multimedia Class Scheduler was not running but when I tried to start it it told me that it wouldn't start in a timely fashion so it couldn't be started.

    The Windows Audio Endpoint Builder seemed to be running.

    I'm not sure how to proceed from here.
