Because of these setting my computer is super fast and I like that but I don't want to have to go into services just to get any kind of audio at all by starting the Windows Audio service. Of course and to get to the topic at hand, starting Windows Audio doesn't seem to affect audio as it is relate to programs such as Windows Media Player. In other words I can hear sound when I get and error message but not when playing a video file. Furthermore and speaking of error messages when I play an audio file, Windows Media Player gives me the following error message: Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly.
When I check the Device Manager a SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio is present, enabled and working properly. However when I go to Sound and Audio Device properties in Control Panel it says No Audio Device at the top and the remaining fields are grayed out.
So basically I would like to know how I can get sound for video files and how I can play audio files.
