Windows Audio Service doesn't start until I adjust volume

Q: Windows Audio Service doesn't start until I adjust volume

This problem has started in recent weeks (yes, too far back to do System Restore):

When I reboot, if I click on the speaker icon in the Notification Area, it tells me that Windows Audio is not running (and so no media app will produce any sound). However, if I then raise or lower the volume via my multimedia keyboard, Windows Audio starts running.

This is despite the fact that in Services, the Startup Type of Windows Audio is Automatic. So why doesn't it start on reboot?

Preferred Solution: Windows Audio Service doesn't start until I adjust volume

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,
I have tried the drivers from RealTek and also the drivers from MSI. (My motherboard is MSI P35 Platinum).
Driver installation / removal always proceeds without any errors.
But the Audio Service just can't start.
In some places, the RealTek device reports status "working properly".
Whereas other places report "no audio device".

A:Realtek ALC888 doesn't work, Audio Service can't start

Realtek Digital Output is the HDMI audio device. What are you using as your audio device? Are you using HDMI or a standard 3.5mm jack to play sounds?
If you want to play sounds you would have to plug something into one of those jacks since windows disables the sound service when nothing is plugged in.

Windows Update may be removing your updated drivers with Microsoft ones. Check the driver tab. Is it from Microsoft or Realtek?

I'm trying to investigate a problem that started several weeks ago-Outlook 2007 search window never brings up any choices; no mail items ever populate the central box

Under Tools/Options/Search Options the boxes are checked for each of the accounts and PST files and to show results as I type. The radio button for All Folders is on. These are the default settings which used to work.

When I type into the search box a pop-up states that there are files that are not yet indexed

Under Windows 7 - Indexing Options, it states indexing is not running

When I check services, Windows Search Service is stopped

Under Windows services Windows Search Service is stopped. It is set to start up on boot however-delayed.

When I try to start this manually an error returned is;

Windows could not start the Windows search service on local computer the service did not return an error this could be an internal Windows error or an internal service error if the problem persists contact your system administrator at

C:\Windows\system32\SearchIndexer.exe /Embedding does exist which is what The Windows Services says is the executable.

 
Meanwhile searching in the search box in Windows Explorer does work but I also get a flag that the files are not indexed


Any help appreciated

A:Windows Search Service doesn't start

Best resolutionI really never got this resolved. I believe it might have been that at that time I had removed what I thought were a number of unnecessary services usingMSconfig. Even though Windows was not able to tell me I must to remove something on which the indexing service was dependent. I resolve by rolling back the machine to a prior date using a full system backup I had created just FYI.

I have been having a problem with my computer for a few weeks now. I have Windows Vista on my computer, and have Webroot Virus Scan. When I go to Google's search engine and click on the link, it gets redirected. Sometimes when I turn on my computer, the volume doesn't work at all. Also, sometimes when I turn my computer on, the computer doesn't load, and it says there is a problem with DellDock installation (which I have no clue what that means). I never had any of these problems before this virus showed up. When I run Webroot, it catches the same virus everytime, some type of virus in Java. I have tried researching this virus, but as I said, Google links don't work.

Howdy folks,

When I boot my computer I have to start the Windows Firewall service manually by opening services, otherwise I won't be able to perform any local networking actions.

The service is set to Automatic, yet doesn't run until I click "start service"

The Base Filtering Engine Service is automatic and runs fine.

The Remote Procedure Call is also automatic and runs fine.

Anyone have any advice on how I can get Windows Firewall to actually...y'know start running when it's set to be automatic?

Hi,

Over the past week or so I've had a few problems with my Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 1570. I'm not sure what happened to start it all off. The first thing I noticed was that I could no longer get sound from the computer - the speaker icon is no longer visible, and when I try to access 'Sound' in Control Panel, either nothing happens or I receive a message which says 'Windows Audio Service is not running'.

I have tried to restart the Audio Service in services.mcs, but to no avail. I also noticed here that the Plug and Play Service is stopped, and it won't start either. The green bar shoots up to about halfway and then stalls, before I receive an 'Error 1053' message.

In addition to this, my laptop has stopped recognising external devices - printer, usb storage etc, and the Device Manager is empty.

I'm tearing my hair out trying to figure out what's going on, and could really use some help from someone who knows what they're doing. As you may have gathered from my clumsy description of my issues, I'm not exactly a technical wizard!!

Any help will be hugely appreciated!

Thanks

Brian

A:PnP / Windows Audio Service won't start

In Admin Tools in the Control Panel make sure in Services that Plug & Play is set to Automatic and hit Start. If you go back to the Device Manager and everything is there, you should be good to go. If not, check back with us.

Hi all,

I am having problems getting sound to play on my speakers and I can't for the life of me figure out why. Some background:

I had to do a clean re-install of of Windows XP on a Sony VIAO desktop PC. Everything seemed to be working fine, including the sound. But after installing some updates including Service Pack 3, the sound just stopped working. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers without success. The device manager shows that the sound controllers are fine(see attached for devicemanager.gif)

Now I have tried looking at the related service(s) and was unable to start the Windows Audio Service. The error I get is "Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly."(see attached screen shot - servicerr.gif)

By the way, the service is set to start automatically but something seems to be causing it to fail. I checked on event viewer and there are a bunch of services that fail to start automatically on booting, including Windows Audio service. The error showing up is: "The Windows Audio service hung on starting." See attached screen shot - eventviewer.gif . One other thing I noticed is that the Windows XP takes quite a bit of time to login after I enter my username and password on booting. But after that it is smooth sailing except for the sound.

I have read and tried all the solutions that i can find on this issue. I have contacted Microsoft for a possible solution but they want to charge me and i know there is a free fix. So my hope is that someone out there knows what it is.
The issue i am having is i currently have an icon in my system tray that is a speaker with a red X. When i hover over it the tag says "The Audio Service is not running". I have gone into Services and discovered that it is my Windows Audio Service that is not running. I have tried to start it manually and it returns an error code 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. This error is returned within 2 seconds of attempting to start.
The little bit of info i could get from the technician at Microsoft is that it could be a malware corrupting my .dll files. I downloaded Malware bytes and run it. i removed the possible threats that it came back with. I have run a full virus scan using Kaspersky Pure 3.0 and have no viruses. Also i downloaded the latest .Net framework and its updates. I have all current drivers so that is not an issue. I have no idea what else to do. Please help.....

I have here a Windows 7 pc,
Everything was going well, untill a game I like to play wasn't loading after patch. No the reason for the post, just were this all started. I noticed that svchost was running 90+ percent of my cpu. So I ran Malwarebyts , It pulled four malicious files. ( I just checked, I guess Malwarebyts decided that logs are not important, Logging is on, but there are no logs there)

After-which, I restarted the machine. When It booted, low and behold, no audio.
I looked around a bit and found that the Windows Audio service is not starting. Trying to start it throws this error.
"Window could not start the Windows Audio service on Local Computer.

Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start"

I checked the dependencies, and they are all on.

At this point I decided to try to troubleshoot.
I went into the registry, and removed the dependencies form the service. ( I backed up the key.)
Restated the machine, and tryed to start the service. This is when thing got odd. This time it threw a different error.

I have the same issue. Just happened to me two days ago. I've been googling things like mad and trying all kinds of things.

1. Checked services...
2. Tried to check the list of Windows updates to see if I can remove one by one to see if that helps, but Windows Updates freezes while trying to load the list of updates.
3. Uninstalled AVG antivirus as I read somewhere that after a windows update AVG put a file in the virus vault and once the user uninstall AVG and reinstalled it fixed it. Didn't work for me.
4. Tried the "simply turn up your volume and it should go away trick" that didn't work.

i'm using a p5b deluxe motherboard with on-board sound.

my sound was working when i installed se7en, but i had the speakers in the wrong port. fixed that.

the very next reboot, i get a red x over the speaker icon in the system tray. when you mouse over it, it tells you that "the Audio Service is not running." when you left click on it, it tries to fix the problem by starting Windows Audio service. it can't. i'm not suprised. if you right-click on the icon and choose a device to look at, the sound window comes up from the control panel. under both playback and recording, there are no devices shown. instead it says "No audio devices are installed".

now, i think this is the biggest clue: when you go into services, Windows Audio's status is blank, and, strangely, the Startup Type is set to Automatic. all three other dependant services are turned on ( Windows Audio Endpoint Builder, Plug and Play, and, i'm pretty sure, RPC Endpoint Mapper ).

k, when you right-click the Windows Audio service, it starts to, breifly, turn on but quickly shows an error message saying,

I hate to say it, over the years though, I have read about people plugging into the wrong jack and frying the onboard audio in poorly designed mobos. I'm not suggesting that this is what happened here, but it is one of the many possibilities.

Try to install and use that as a test.

I have recently installed Windows 7 on my new computer. My sound drivers are all up to date, and the Device Manager knows they are there and working.

So, I looked up solutions, and was told to enable the Windows Audio service. I tried, and got a 1067 Error (Unexpectedly terminated). I have started, and successfully run, all of the dependencies, yet Windows Audio still won't run. I ran the 'sfc /scannow' as I was told that might work, but no luck.

So I installed some new Windows updates today (whatever was available via Windows Update). I restarted my computer to enable the updates. When it came back on, my task bar was white for some reason. I solved that problem using the first solution I found here: [SOLVED] Taskbar is white

Well I didn't change my volume before doing that, so I don't know if it worked before I followed that solution. I do know that after following that solution, my volume meter no longer shows up when I change the volume via the keys for it on my keyboard. This is pretty annoying because it was convenient to always see my audio level when I adjusted the volume.

I am on a HP Pavilion dv7-6c95dx with beats audio, running Windows 7 64-bit. When I changed my volume, the beats audio logo with a volume meter under it would pop up, but it no longer shows up. I haven't noticed any change in the quality of my sound, and I can still actually adjust the volume level. The problem is the volume meter no longer displays to show me the volume level.

If anyone has any clue as to why this happened, that would be great!

Hi, never seen this reported; I gather this is a new laptop, with nothing installed.

Assuming you have not configured settings in some strange manner or been infected, there's little to go on.

Your first port of call is definitely your supplier. (Mine is good- technically quick and competent- they did a remote session recently to discover what they believed could be achieved could no longer on this model!).

Given it's a brand new configuration, you could try completely formatting your disk and reinstalling Windows, but I would not do that before contacting your supplier.

You may also have a recovery partition which allows you to reset it to ex-factory condition.

The registry value you'd want to check is ImagePath. In your case it seems to point to something that's not being found, or the ImagePath value doesn't exist at all.

======================================

The "description" is just a text string. It's saying "use string index 101 from vssvc.exe in the 'description' field for this service". On my box, which is English Windows, that maps to:

"Manages and implements Volume Shadow Copies used for backup ... blah blah"

On yours, the description string embedded in vssvc.exe may be different if it's a Slovenian version.

Hello.
Remote Desktop service has stopped working suddenly on my computer. I can't start Remote Desktop Services (TermService) because it depends on "Terminal device driver" (TermDD) service. And it seems it cannot start because there are exclamation marks
at "Terminal Server Keyboard Driver" and "Terminal Server Mouse Driver" in Device Manager. I tried to reinstall these devices but it didn't help. The error message says: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver
may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39). During reinstallation of the driver for both devices there is
CM_PROB_DRIVER_FAILED_LOAD error in installer logs. I don't think it's really the driver problem. I have termdd.sys in my system and it is in correct version. I observed that when I run Windows in safe mode both devices work correctly and there are no
exclamation marks. Therefore I suppose there is some conflict with other driver or something.
I don't remember changing anything in the system related to Remote Desktop. The only thing I recall is that I have accidentally removed "UMBus Root Bus Enumerator". I have reinstalled it later but it didn't help.

A:Remote Desktop service doesn't start

Hi,
Sorry for the late reply.
Let?s see this picture:


I suggest you uninstall the device first (create a system restore point before), then use my method to install the device.
How it works?

It is a usb drive on which I have my portable office. I keep it plugged to keep my browsers, email client and security apps updated. I didn't have this problem last year.

That is the error that occurs sometimes. I have not found a reason for it. Most of the time a reboot fixes it. The system freezes and I have the eternal hourglass and I wait and wait. I get up make coffee and wait more. Finally I do a hard boot. What could be the reason for it. Some conflict of programs I have. I reinstall my OS each new year. This is the first year that I have had the error.

Look in Device Manager for yellow exclamation points by the USB hub controllers. You will probably have to delete them and reboot the computer to let Windows re-detect them

Hi,

One of our computer having a problem, a Pentium 4 with a Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 2.

It has many issues, the source of which seems to be that the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service doesn't start.

As a consequence Windows Update, System Information, System Restore, User & Accounts control panel, printers, Windows Firewall, ActiveX, and many other things all don't work.

I can't install anything. And when I go into Device Manager, Services, or other things like that, I can't view the properties of any items.

Almost all services don't work, maybe they depend on Remote Procedure Call too?

If I go into Services (only Standard view works), I can see that Remote Procedure Call is set as "Automatic" startup type, but is not "Started" at all.

Any attempt to start it manually results in the error "Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service on Local Computer. Error 5: Access is Denied".

Every Sunday morning, our VDI's with W7 32 bit and VMware view 5.1 get a scheduled reboot. About 5% of them are not reachable after the reboot. It turns out the Firewall service hasn't started.
When I look in the event log, it says after the reboot:

The Windows Firewall service terminated with service-specific error This operation returned because the timeout period expired.


I can also see that the VDI doesn't have the correct domain profile (none), but that seems to be the case for every VDI.
The problem occasionally also happens during the week.
Steps taken to remediate this: I created a GPO that restarts the FW service the first 2 times and restarts the computers after subsequent failures. The network adapter is a E1000. After consulting VMware, we changed it to VMXNET 3, but this didn't help and
we could not image our VDI's any more.

Hello everybody. I have a difficult but interesting problem. A few days ago after a system crash I lost all sound, the volume control was gone and error saying no mixer is preset would appear every time I tryed to play a sound. Onboard sound is turned on in BIOS, in device manager it displayed as woking properly. I reinstaled the drivers, and uninstalled the onboard sound from hardware manager, and manualy reinstalled it, none of it did anything. In control panel> Sounds and Audio devices is sais " no audio device", but in Winamp or Ventrilo I went into the options and is output device it was set to some defalt generic item, I changed it back to my onboard sound and now winamp play mp3s just fine, as well as ventrillo.
So this is not a driver or hardware problem, this is a windows problem.

I have researched it quite a bit and found a few poeple with exactly the same problem. It apears that Windows Audio service is dissplayed as "stopped" even tho it's set to Automatic. Alot of people were able to solve their problem by simply clicking the start service button and it all worked fine onse again. How ever few (I'm one of these guys) the service would not start, instead we get this error

(Windows XP Home) When I attempt to adjust the volume using the slider on the Volume tab of the Sounds and Audio Devices section of the control panel, the volume gets louder as I drag the slider over, and then (without even releasing the mouse button), the volume automatically decreases as the slider moves to it's lowest position. It's as if the volume is pegged "low" elsewhere in the system, and the slider must reflect that value despite my trying to adjust it. TIA for any assistance.

I don't know how it happened, but recently, the sound has gotten all screwed up. It seems to be set to an unbearably low volume at maximum. I can hear the asterisk system sound, but the others must be too quiet to hear. I can hear my MP3s and some other sound files, but they are so soft I can't hear them well at all. even when WinAmp is set to 100% volume. Turning the knob on my speakers has no effect at all.

I can hear sounds online (such as the Crazy Frog movie: http://dd0s.org/~wooolf/crazyfrog/ ), but the volume is rather quiet.

Using the Volume Control, I find that nothing is muted, and everything is at maximum. I can lower the volume to make it even quieter, but I can't make it louder (since it's at maximum).

I am currently using NVIDIA nForce drivers (the most recent ones)...in fact, I just installed these new ones, hoping it would fix my problem, to no avail.

I use WinXP Home, SP1.

Hey guys,

I posted this earlier in the Multimedia thread but was told to post it here.

I have been having trouble with my sound this past week. Is stays at 100%. I try to slide my volume, but it quickly goes back to 100%. I don't know what the problem is. I have ran dxdiag and it says there are no problems found. My speakers are Conexant High Definition SmartAudio. I have tried pretty much everything: googling it, but no answers there.

I do believe my roommate has something to do with it. He went to high school for technology, and after a dispute over my music being too loud he said he would start to control my volume. Some time during the week, I had found my computer had mysteriously restarted. So this has led me to believe that he has installed a program, which allows him to control my volume. I want to make sure he's doing this, so he can face the consequences. I just need your help. Is there something installed in my computer? What can I do to get rid of it?

There's also another strange thing that occurred. After posting this in the Multimedia thread, my volume somehow became adjustable again. Weird. I now have a feeling he can see what I do on my computer, and realized I posted this? I am so confused. I just would like answers.

Thanks so much beforehand. My operating system is Windows Vista and I have an HP Notebook PC, if that helps.

and under Sound Playback, see if there's anything listed there

I did an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8, and am using the on-board sound (which is realtek), until Auzentech release new Windows 8 driver, the problem is on reboot, Windows 8 loads up and each and every time I get the Windows audio service hasn't started, so it's either use the audio trouble shooter or go into services manually to restart the service, is this a know issue with Windows 8 or could it be something else. Does anyone know how to get the audio service to start automatically, because it's rather quickly becoming a pain in the butt to have to run the trouble shooter each and every time Windows 8 reboots.

A:Audio service won't start

I assume, from the Auzentech comment, that you have a separate sound card. If that is the case it needs to be removed until you do get the needed drivers. With it installed and enabled and the on-board RealTek enabled they can conflict and cause many problems.

However, the Windows 7 drivers should work. I have an HT Omega "Striker 7.1" sound card in one of my Win 8 systems and the Vista/Windows 7 drivers work without problems. Same way, in my recording studio system, the Windows 7 drivers for my audio gear works OK in Windows 8.

This may be an HP problem. I'm not sure. When I open the speaker settings, the display shows the volume set at 100%, yet, I can barely hear the soundtrack of a DVD I am watching just inches away. I have tried using the sliding volume at the top of the keyboard as well as the volume control in the media player, which will only increase volume to 50% in Windows Media Player. Still too low for me. I can lower (from 50%) or mute the volume- just not increase it. Has anyone else had this problem? I would love to know how to fix this. Thanks!

Right Click on the volume speaker icon on the bottom right hand side on the desktop..

Then right click on your headphone icon
Select properties
Go to the levels tab and set the volume as per your wish.
Click Apply / Ok

Now unplug the headphone and plug it back in and check if this helps. Awaiting for your response.

WLAN AutoConfig service gives error 1067 when trying to start it.


What I've tried:

Reset winsock settings
Ran SFC /scannow
Did system restore
Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers


I tried all of these in normal mode AND in safe mode. None of it worked.

Then i thought the service dll (C:\Windows\system32\wlansvc.dll) itself might have been damaged/outdated, so I decided to delete it and put a new one from donor pc. NOPE.
It wouldn't give me access to the file. No matter what i tried, safe mode, unlocker tools, auto rename it on startup, doing everything in administrator or even messing with permissions under file properties. It just wouldn't give me access to the file.

Wi-Fi was working smoothly few days ago and i literally have no idea why it stopped working.

I'm not following you entirely, but have you tried (R) clicking on the "mute box" selection when it appears? Does the speaker icon in the task bar have a red "X" on it? Have you gone to "system" in the control panel...than selected 'hardware' to get a look at 'device manager' and what see what it's saying? On your sound mixer click on everything that has a red "x" on it. I'm not meaning to oversimplify, but I think you will discover an easy way out of this problem once you know how to handle the Window mixer console.
