comment Is there a way to restart audio without restarting a Windows 7 computer?
Similar to @xylar comment: Windows Audio service is dependent on Windows Audio Endpoint Builder. Typically when you want to manually start/stop services that involve dependencies they should be nested in the form: stop A, stop B, start B, start A, where A depends on B. Another option is to use services.msc and Restart the lowest level service, which in this case is Windows Audio Endpoint Builder. That automatically executes all the above in proper order.

comment Reset Bluetooth Components Without Having to Reboot
This isn't helpful in my case because only Lenovo has compatible drivers for this particular device, afaik. Hard reset, while restarting the device, doesn't resolve the connectivity problem.

comment Reset Bluetooth Components Without Having to Reboot
Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, that query only hits the services I've already identified and tried resetting, but have had no effect. Nevertheless +1, for explicitly giving a PS example to do that.

comment Good PowerShell guide, getting started through more advanced usage
As a possible replacement to the second link, I found a link on MSDN labelled Windows Powershell Programmer's Guide. I never saw where the link used to go, but the title seems to match. Also, the Guide in the first link appears to be a subset of this one.
