    Windows Audio Service will not start, error 1067

    Hello! This is my first time asking for help; thank you for your time.

    I have an Asus N550JV laptop with windows 8. It has been working great the last year, but after a recent windows update, my audio completely stopped working. After running the troubleshooter, it stated the following:

    One or more audio service isn't running Not fixed
    Both the Windows Audio and the Windows Audio End Point Builder services must be running for audio to work correctly. Atleast one of these services isn't running.

    After doing some research, I was able to view the local services running on my laptop. I found that Windows Audio Endpoint Builder is running, but Windows Audio is not. When trying to start Windows Audio, I got the following messgae:

    Windows could not start the Windows Audio service on Local Computer.
    Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.

    How do I get my audio back? I have Online Lectures I need to watch for school, so any help would be great! Thank you for your time

    Do you have a System Restore point that is BEFORE the last update?

    Sadly, you may have to do a reinstall or if you have a backup a restore from the backup. My Windows 8.1 was corrupted by the last update (my suspicion). Fortunately I had a recent full backup and restored from the backup.
