  1. Audio Services not responding.


    So my mic is not working. Hasn't been working since I installed the update a few days ago. Realtek(R) Audio and Stereo Mix aren't picking up anything when I test them. I have ran command prompt as administrator and I have gone into services and restarted both the Audio and Audio Back Ground Endpoint or whatever. I have shut it down, restarted, troubleshooted this over and over again. It's a new pc I got for Christmas so it should not have problems so early in it's use. Can anybody help?

    Processor AMD Ryzen 5 3550H with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx, 2100 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

    RAM-8 GBs

    I am technically a newbie to the whole computer parts and commands thingy but I have a basic understanding and can navigate my way throughout a computer.

    Audio service not responding

    Hello,

    The audio on my computer isn't working. I've run Troubleshooter and this is what comes up:

    Audio services not responding Not fixed

    One or more audio service isn't running Completed

    Both the Windows audio and Windows Audio End Point Builder services

    must be running or audio to work correctly. At least one of these services isn't

    running.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Elda

  3. Audio Services are not running / responding.

    Charlie,

    The Audio services not responding problem is very likely due to an outdated, corrupted or incompatible audio driver on your Windows. I'd like to ask, what do you mean by "to
    boot in safe mode and or clean boot / wipe the system and that wouldn't be possible in my current situation"? Are you connected via domain server? Are you getting any error messages when you try to boot into safe mode and perform a clean boot?

    In the meantime, I suggest that you follow these steps:

    Step # 1: Restart your audio services.

    1. Press Windows key + R and then type services.msc and click OK.
    2. Find and right-click on "Windows Audio", then click Restart.
    3. Right-click on Windows Audio one more time, this time click Properties.
    4. Set the Startup type to Automatic. Click Apply > OK.
    5. Do the same thing to "Windows Audio Endpoint Builder".
    Note: If the Restart option grayed out, your Windows Audio Endpoint Builder service is not running, click Start instead.

    Step # 2: Uninstall the audio driver in the Device Manager. Open Device Manager> Sound, video and game controllers> Right click the driver> Properties> Driver tab> Uninstall Device> Restart
    your PC, and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver.

    Note: If the same issue persists after reinstalling the driver, please contact the audio card manufacturer's website and find and download the correct drivers for your device. Then install it on your computer manually.
