EEK!

Ok, So the other day i was playing something and as i was, i noticed it was going utterly slow. So i shrank the screen and brought up the task manager. Apparently one of the svchost.exe were using about 70-80. I knew i shouldnt have, but i ended the process, no reprecussions at that moment, so i was clear. Next morning "Now" My sound decides that there is no audio driver. I found that svchost.exe was running my audio and i have tried many methods as to turn it back on, no luck. Any assistance that anyone can provide will be very appreciated.

You shouldn't close any svchost's, sometimes they use about 70-80.

As for your sound, you should reinstall the drivers.

hi, if your svchost is using alot of cpu this means that it is checking that all your system files are up to date etc.
go to start then control panel and then go to updates. click on automatic updates, click turn off update.
then go to start then run and type services .msc
the at the time find windows update right click on it click properties. then choose stop service and at startup choose disabled.
now reboot pc and that should solve that problem.
as for your sound are you sure it is not muted does go to start then run and type dvmgmt.msc check for any yello sign and also check for audio.
try a system restore.
reply back..

Thank you, but the only thing that worked is going into services.msc. There was no windows update part in there. Also there was nothing called update in where my control panel is. Lastly, i coudlnt run dvmgmt.msc for it did not exist? I do appreciate you telling me why it is using so much of my cpu.

ok when you go to start run services.msc in the name it is in the line 9. it is called automatic update.
the dvmgtmt.exe is the same as right click on my computer then properties and choose hard ware then device manager.

In device manager expand the sound, video and game controller by pressing the plus sign. list and them and type them again on reply.

algo go to control panel then choose sound speech and audio device. then click sound and audio device, then click audio tab in default device choose one audio device and if there is is audio device that means that the sound might be muted. if there isn't then you haven't installed the drivers correctly or you have installed the wrong one.

In sound,video and game controllers i have
Audio codecs
Legacy audio drivers
Legacy video capture devices
Media control devices
Realtek ac'97 audio
video codecs

I checked for the sound device, and it says "there is no audio device" Yet there is.

Aight, well i fixed it. It seems the problem was that after i deleted the svchost.exe, it made it so ac97 (My sound driver) Wasnt set as my main one. Just changed it to be the main one, and it was fixed. Thank you for telling me how i can stop it from using alot of my memory at a time.
