Windows 10: No sound and cannot open stuff after some time Solved

    No sound and cannot open stuff after some time

    So lately Ive put my computer to sleep mode instead of turning it off, but I wasnt at my computer a few days and then this happend(I was last night when this happend so 2 days ago and everything worked fine)

    But now when I listen to music and play GTA or something, after playing when I try to watch YouTube or listen to music it doesnt start, also when I open something that needs admin rights it doesnt make windows sounds or anything

    When I log off and log back in it is all right, but I dont wanna keep doing that, Ive tried restarting and it doesnt work,

    So I decided to open playback devices(Usually it has just switched with my headphones and my monitor[My headphones are Logitech G633]) but this time it doesnt even open(It opens when I log back into windows) but I can see its still using my G633 Headphones when I hold my mouse over the icon

    Also yesterday I was having this problem that "The audio service is not running", I fixed it by restarting my computer and unplugging headphones and plugging them in after ive logged in

    So I hope someone can help me

    Update It happend again and this time unplugging the headphones didnt work

    Also when I try to restart windows audio in services.msc it says "Windows could not stop the Windows Audio Service on local computer. Error 1053: The service didnot respond or restart in a timely fashion"

    A service most likely got screwed up somehow when it probably woke up out of S3 state and then went back to sleep. Go into device manager and remove the driver and device for the sound device. Reboot and let windows reinstall the default driver to see if it works. While you are at it, do a standard Anti-Malware scan with Malwarebytes.

    This wouldve been a great idea, but I was like "Aint no one gonna help me" so I did a clean install

    Actually it would have helped instead of reinstalling the OS. In order to fix problems you have to follow the steps. Otherwise it wastes the time of those of us who volunteer our own time in helping others on here. Mark this as solved, since you did not really fix the problem.
