The Audio Service Is Not Running – Fix Inside

The solution to the non-working/ windows audio service is not enabled

There has been one common technical issue that has been lately bothering many Windows OS users. It is about the following – the audio service is not running. The Sound icon on the Taskbar that controls the speakers and shows a small volume slider stops functioning and gets a red X in the bottom-right corner. Also, if you place the pointer of your mouse over the same icon you will get the actual error “The Audio Service is disabled”

Running the troubleshooter will usually not be enough to fix the audio service is not running problem. Lets see some possible reasons behind it.

Most commonly, this type of an issue affects the Windows 7 and Windows 10 users, possibly because these are the most widely used versions of windows. There are also recorded cases in which this problem has affected older versions too.

Despite the fact that there appears a red X on the Sound icon, it is still possible for most of the affected users to still play audio files and to use all available speakers and headphones. Even so, the error remains and can become a nuisance.

The most usual suspect of causing such an issue is a function by the same name – Windows Audio Service. The problem may also be caused by any of its subordinate features that ensure the normal running of the Audio Service. Such a feature may just suddenly stop functioning without reason, because of a problem or simply fail to start working when the system is turned on.
A lot of users respond to the issue by just restarting their personal computers. Nevertheless, this is not a permanent solution to the problem and is not very convenient as the the audio service is not running error will reappear after some time. Fortunately, there have been established more concrete methods of dealing with this problem to block the The Audio Service is not running notification from appearing.
