    Turned my computer on this morning to find i have no sound, done all the general stuff such as making sure the correct audio is selected/enabled, re installed the drivers etc.. After a quick Google it appears this is a common problem, found a method which works apparently but i'm having trouble following it. I need to enabled "Power service" in Services.msc but i can't find it, it's 100% not there.

    Link to the thread i'm following.
    http://www.sevenforums.com/sound-audio/9183-windows-audio-endpoint-builder-service-will-not-start.html

    Any help would be appreciated, i need sound.

    Have tried a few different headsets, speakers etc.. tired them on another machine to make sure they are working which they are.

    "windows audio" service

    check if this service is enabled and running.

    That service is not running, i can't run it. Get some sort of error, it needs Audio Endpoint Builder to run but i can't turn that on either because i need to start this "Power" service but as you can see from the image above there isn't one of my computer. Once i find and enable it then my audio (hopefully) will come back.

    Run sfc /scannow earlier on, found corrupted files but was unable to fix them.
    C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k DcomLaunch did nothing

    Put the installation DVD in drive and re run sfc, it cannot fix files from nowhere.

    you may need to restart, check if power service comes back in services.

    I think the 1st response should have been to run a System Restore. There's a good chance this is a result of malware.

    seems yes, poster can try malwarebytes to scan system, but it will not repair system to original.
