  1. Hey, I Just got an error after configuring my msconfig. Windows isnt detecting my creative soundblaster audio card, it worked fine yesterday. I wonder if I accidently unchecked the wrong thing out of my startup. I had my processes up to about 34 yesterday now they are down to about 25 and I cannot access my add hardware in control panel. I have alot of programs that are not running as well in my "services"(kinda like msconfig) (most are manual or disabled) in administrative tools. That were running yesterday. Just want to know if any of you know what could be the service that isnt running that is preventing my audio device from working. Please respond.

    It would sort of help if we knew what you have disabled..

    Windows Audio is pretty obvious, is it not? :p

    actually i was just looking at that, it is disabled but i cant start it, it says this:
    Could not start the Windows Audio service on local computer, Error 1068: The dependancy service or group failed to start.

    Something else that Windows Audio depends on, is disabled too.
