I have a problem with my sound, I used to be able to hear, but not able to use a microphone, but now I can't even hear sound.
I have a PC with vista home edition (32-bit), its a Dell Dimension E521 computer and when I go to services.msc and try to start Windows Audio Endpoint Builder, I get an error 0x80070002: The system cannot find the file specified.
After google searching solutions I've tried to run sfc with the /scannow switch, I've seen that windows power needs to be enabled in windows 7 (don't think this service exists in windows vista) and that I should try to disable the sigmatel service, but I cannot find either of these services in the service log and am at a loss of what to do. I cannot re-install because I no longer have the disks from the manufacturer, and I can't do a restore point, because apparently I have none (not my computer originally so I forgot to check and see if it was turned on), but I hear that a restore point won't do any good for this issue anyway.
If anyone has any suggestions on what I can do, I'd greatly appreciate the help.
