I have a Asus P8Z68-V board with onboard sound (Realtek HD). The driver obviously is installed, at least that's what the device manager says at the node
Sound, video and game controllers. I have the entry
High Definition Audio Device and since I have a 2nd gen Core i5, there is also an HDMI port with integrated audio, which is listed as Intel(R) Display Audio`. Both devices are working properly, at least that's what the property dialog says about both.
After the first message that the Audio Service is not running, I set the
Windows Audio service's start mode to automatic and also started it.
Now the icon in the tray still is red and says
No Audio Output Device is installed. But I definetly can tell that there IS an audio device installed. What can I do to make my Windows Server 2008 R2 recognize the audio devices?
