  1. Windows Audio Service not working,


    Speaker icon with red 'x'. The problem is occurring to Standard users on multiple devices running Windows 10 Pro 64 bit 1709 and 1803. Dell is the manufacturer of all devices affected. The environment is Active Directory domain joined desktops and laptops. The quick fix is to click on the speaker icon in the system tray, enter the Admins credentials and allow the troubleshooter to restart the Audio service. This has only been resolved by entering the credentials of users with elevated privileges. In some instances the problem has ceased in others it's an everyday occurrence. I have removed the audio driver and installed the latest from Dell's website. I have also updated BIOS, Chipset and Windows. I'm looking for a permanent solution.

  2. Windows Audio Service Stopped Working

    For that particular error message, it seems that at least one of the 2 services, Windows Audio and Windows Audio Endpoint Builder isn't running. You may need to check if both Windows Audio and Windows Audio Endpoint Builder services are running.

    Follow the steps provided below:

    • Right-click on the Start icon on the lower left hand corner.
    • Look for Run and click on it.
    • Type in services.msc.
    • Once the Services window is up, look for Windows Audio and Windows Audio Endpoint Builder.
    • Make sure the 2 services are running and the Startup Type must be Automatic.

    Hi David,

    An outdated audio driver is one of the possible causes why the sound of your device is not working properly.

    To troubleshoot your concern, kindly follow these steps:

    • Press Windows key + R key together to open Run dialog box. Then type services.msc and hit Enter to open Services window. Locate Windows
      Audio
      and Windows Audio Endpoint Builder services. Then check if their Status are Running and Startup type is Automatic.
    • Follow the series of troubleshooting steps on this

      .
    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
