one or more audio service isnt running

hi, my comp is having some audio problems and i need help.
-windows 7 ultimate 32 bit-


it says i have no audio playback device installed?

One or more audio service isn't running?

Both the Windows Audio and the Windows Audio End Point Builder services must be running for audio to work correctly. Atleast one of these services isn't running?

i dont know what to do.?

i cant start up windows normally. it gives me the screen of death and restarts.
i can only start up in safe mode.

and my sound doesnt work no audio at all.

Welcome to Seven Forums levi655. Try this:

Start> Type services.msc in search box and press enter. When the services page opens scroll down to Windows Audio and the Windows Audio End Point Builder will be directly beneath it, both should be started and set to automatic as in my screen shot:

one or more audio service isnt running-audio.jpg

If either or both are stopped, click on the name to highlight it, and click restart the service in upper left. Repeat for both if necessary. If either/both are not set to automatic, then double click the name, and on the dropdown set the startup type to automatic, and apply and ok your way out.

If both are started, and set to automatic, see if that fixes it. If they are already set that way, post back, and we'll try something else. A Guy

Both the windows audio and the windows audio end point builder services must be running for audio to work correctly. Atleast one of these services isn't running?

I dont know what to do.?

I cant start up windows normally. It gives me the screen of death and restarts.
I can only start up in safe mode.

And my sound doesnt work no audio at all.

Did you change services setting before this happened? Did this happen after making some changes? Do you perhaps have a system restore point from before this began? If so, I'd try that 1st. If not:

Start> Type services.msc in search box and press enter> Scroll down to Windows Audio> Right click the entry and choose Properties> Click on the dependencies tab and see if your dependencies match mine:

Do the same for the End Point Builder

The EPB has the Audio as a dependency, and the Audio has other services that it depends on. If you don't see some, check those services and let us know if any are stopped. A Guy
