How to restart the service

  1. In Windows search for "services.msc" and select the best match.

  2. Scroll down until you find the start of the Windows Services, the first should be "Windows Audio" and the one under it is the "Windows Audio Endpoint Builder" which is the service we are looking for.

  3. Right click on the service and select restart, You should get a popup that notifies you that other services may also restart, this is fine just select yes.

  4. Once the Service has been restarted check if the devices are now responding and showing in Windows properly
