    Windows Sound Control Panel won't open


    So I've detected that my PC has been a bit slow lately, it takes longer to load webages and stuff. But this strange thing happened. I was rendering a youtube video, when Sony Vegas Pro 12 was done with the file, the software crashed, and after that my PC has been complete sh*t. Before I restarted it I couldn't even watch youtube videos, they rendered but wouldn't play. Spotify crashed and I had to audio.

    I restarted my PC and then everything seemed nice, but then when I was about to launch TheHunter:Primal I had to switch over to my headset, and for some reason I couldn't open Windows sound panel. So atm I can't open sound panel. I really don't know what happened. I need help asap.

    I've received help on this forum before, just on another account and I've never been as satisfied. I really hope I can feel the same way this time too

    Solved


    Well, I solved the audio problem on my own. All I had to do was to disconnect my PC from internet, delete all the audio drivers from Device Manager and I downloaded this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B53...ew?usp=sharing

    I restarted my PC and then I installed the package which I downloaded. I restarted my PC again, and Voila So if someone has the same problem as me using Asus Maximus Hero VII Z97 Motherboard, maybe you also can benefit from this.
