Windows 7: Windows Audio Service is not running - Automatic

Windows Audio Service is not running - Automatic

Hey,

I am having two issues, small but irritating; once I boot into Windows, my audio service is not running, it is set to automatic and it needed to be manually started (I have tried reinstalling my audio drivers)

I am also having issues with my network, my connection is "identifying" until I launch an application such as Spotify.

I hope this image can assist you in some way along with an ipconfig /all dump.

First thing I would try would be sfc/scannow to see if any system files have become corrupt.

Click start and type cmd, right click cmd and run as admin. Type into cmd sfc/scannow and enter, looking at your sys specs it wont take long.
