I am trying to get my audio up and running. The audio is running off of my MSI P67 motherboard. The Audio icon says "The audio service is not running". When I click on it once a troubleshooting window opens which ultimately fails to restart the service. I tried manually restarting the audio service but it does not want to start.
I read online this could be from the "power" service in services.msc not being started. However, the Power service does not even exist in my services.msc. Also I can not open the "power options" window in the control panel (probably as a result of the service not existing).
This is a brand new computer with a fresh install of windows 7 ultimate.
Early on the power options did work just fine because I manipulated them so that my monitor would stop turning off.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, this one is really stumping me.
