The Service Control Manager will generate an event if a service does not respond within the defined timeout period (the default timeout period is 30000 milliseconds). To resolve this problem, use the Registry Editor to change the default timeout value for all services.
  • In the Registry Editor, click the registry subkey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
  • In the details pane, locate the ServicesPipeTimeout entry, right-click that entry and then select Modify.Note: If the ServicesPipeTimeout entry does not exist, you must create it by selecting New on the Edit menu, followed by the DWORD Value, then typing ServicesPipeTimeout, and clicking Enter.
  • Click Decimal, enter the new timeout value in milliseconds (i prefer 120000), and then click OK.
  • Restart the computer.

I asked you for the regedit screenshot... but I forgive that error ;-)

I see this now:
A timeout was reached (120000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Windows Audio service to connect.
120 seconds is a long wait.... even that didn't fix it. Longer is absurd. All dependencies are running fine.

Did you add or modify the ServicesPipeTimeout entry in registry? If you did add it.... remove it again. If you did modify it... put it back to 30000 so value it had. you can reboot (or do that later)

I realize this thread is old but I just encountered this problem, and none of the above solutions helped. The problem was that I installed a new motherboard that came with a disk full of drivers and monitoring programs (and Norton antivirus); they all seemed like they would be helpful so I installed all of them. So in total there were two related to audio. I uninstalled both of them and this problem went away. As soon as I rebooted, my speakers installed drivers automatically and then audio started working; seems like whatever these things were they were preventing my speakers' drivers from being installed, but the visible symptom was the Windows Audio Service failing to start properly.

Anyway thought I'd post this on the off-chance it helps anyone.
