Windows 7: one or more audio service isnt running

I have been having the exact same problem, and getting the exact same errors. All of my dependencies match yours. Windows Audio and Windows Audio Endpoint are both stopped. When I try to start either one I get the error "Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start." I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers and disabling and enabling drivers, and none of that has worked.

hello all
have you tried this in services? change Startup type of power
>Control Panel
> System and Security
> Administrative Tools
> Services
> Right click on Power go to properties
> Change to Automatic if setting is different click OK and restart.

Note: do not disable this

This is all that showed after I enabled show hidden devices.


EDIT:
I went and downloaded the Realtek High Definition Audio driver and now this is what I get after enabling hidden devices.

Plug and Play is started and set to automatic.

Multimedia Class Scheduler is not started and set to automatic. When I try to start it, I get this error message "Windows could not start the Multimedia Class Scheduler service on Local Computer. Error 193: 0xc1".

Have a look here:

If no help, it may be time for a repair install, try the System File Checker 1st:

SFC

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If gives error that some files could not be repaired, run it again after restart. If no help, a Repair Install will almost assuredly fix it:

Repair Install

I just did a repair install last night to fix a System Restore problem.

I used the SFC /SCANNOW tutorial. The scannow showed that I had corrupt files but it wasn't able to repair them. I ended up using the tip where I extracted the files from the Windows 7 Installation DVD and replaced the corrupted files with new ones, and the problem was solved. Thanks so much for all your help!
