Liston to this device "magically" stopped working.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been using Audio Virtual Cable for my livestream to separate team voice, and the rest of the computer's sounds. Everything was working fine, 4 hours ago. Was rewatching a video and decided to turn off my computer and take a 3 hour nap. When I come back, no sound is playing through my Audio Virtual Cable. Upon doing some tests, it looks like all the sound is still being processed, (IE. If AVC is set to be captured on livestream, the audio is captured and recorded. Can be heard on saved video) but it isn't playing to my headsets. I made sure everything was working (AVC at 100% volume, speakers at 100% volume, and Listen to this device set properly.) but nothing is working. I even tried using my other program called Virtual Audio Cable(VAC) and it too used to work with Listen to this device. However, it's not working either.

I'm not sure what happened 4 hours ago when I turned off my computer, but I know I changed absolutely nothing. I can still hear audio through my speakers fine but not AVC/VAC using Listen to this device. I've heard windows update also ****s things up, but I haven't updated since 2013.

OS: Windows 7.
Audio(?): Realtek High Definition Audio

So, I'm not sure what's happening here but...

I reinstalled the Realtek HD Audio Drivers, from their website. Upon doing so, my "Listen to this device" is now working. However, turning off my computer and turning it back on breaks the "Listen to this device" feature yet again. I was wondering if maybe it was a fluke, so I reinstalled the drivers. Again, it's working but as soon as I turn off my computer the feature breaks again.

No solution I've seen. However, restarting the audio service should get it going again when it stops.

Easy way is to make a batch file:
Code:
net stop AudioSrv
net start AudioSrv

Copy that into notepad, save it as all files as restartaudio.bat and you should should be good to go. This might break the programs that are currently using sound, but at least you don't have to reboot.

I wanted to personally thank you. This solution works a treat and I can now live stream again on Windows 7!
