Hi All,
I am having trouble with both sound input and output in windows 8.1. Error message is " The Audio Service is not running". I eventually find out the system believes there are neither audio input nor output devices installed. Still, when I go to device manager, the audio system is clearly listed there, the microphone, speakers and mixers are functioning correctly, so is the audio controller , all according to device manager . I checked that the drivers are updated, but still no sound. I have gone over a few You Tube videos with no success.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

Seems the driver is corrupted? Try to reinstall. Maybe think about updating to Win10. It's loads better than 8.1

Thank you. Sadly saying something is better than Win 8.1 is sort of like saying someone is nicer than Hitler.

If you miss 7 then upgrade.
