    Hello, and welcome.

    Since the "Windows Audio" service is missing, you could try restoring it using the tutorial below to hopefully fix your sound issue.

    You could try doing a repair install of Windows 10 below without losing anything to hopefully restore it.

    How did you do that 'restore' ? System restore? Or did you restore a disk image?

    Assuming your disk is ok (have you checked it?) then Brink's suggestion of an in-place upgrade repair which keeps all progs and data is worthwhile.. could save you a lot of time and fiddling. You need a compatible iso matching or perhaps greater than your (unknown) major build.

    This update, for example, albeit Aug '22, caused some problems. Note it's a preview update- and I choose not to allow those.

    That link offers some basic fixes, including
    - Run the audio troubleshooter (e.g. search for 'audio problems') and post screenshots showing results, expanding to show all details.
