Sometimes, when I try to go to volume control, I get the following message.

To fix it, I go to Start-->Programs-->Administrative Tools-->Services. I scroll down to Windows Audio and start the service. I can't figure out why I have to do this because it is set to automatic. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi, timduncan, welcome to BC!

A couple of questions for you:
What is the make/model of your computer?
What kind of sound card do you have?
Is your computer up to date with Windows Updates?

Possible solution based on what you've already provided:

visit the manufacturer's website for your soundcard (or computer) and download the latest drivers for your sound card.

I have a HP Pavilion dv9030us Notebook PC, a Conexant High Definition Audio sound card, and I'm pretty sure everything is up to date (on both Windows Update and the drivers). What else could I try?
