    Windows Audio Error 1079

    I also tried reinstalling the sound card drivers - but that was no help.

    Windows Audio Service just won't run.

    Stop the Window Audio Service.

    Start the Windows Audio Endpoint Builder Service.

    Restart the Windows Audio Service.

    Set both to Automatic.
