Windows 7: Audio Service not running

Audio Service not running

This is kind of weird. Down by the sound icon says "Audio Service is not running".

I have sound with audio files such as MP3 and sound when I play a video file.

I know I am using onboard sound, and in the Device Manager, it says "High Definition Audio Device". There are NO indications that all drivers are not working.

Where I don't have sound is with a microphone. I can NOT record sound with a microphone and have tried my mic on another pc and it works.

I would like some help getting the microphone working and be able to record from it.

Thank you
