Windows services are responsible for managing your computers background processes, including the network connection, sound, accounts, security, power, Bluetooth, and so on. These services run in the background and are initiated when your PC is booted up.
The Windows services concerned with sound on your system are:

2. Windows Audio Endpoint Builder
3. Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Let’s see how you can restart these services on Windows 11.

In Services, scroll down and locate the ‘Windows Audio’ service.
Now “Right-click” on the same and click on “Restart”.
If you see a prompt similar to the one below, click on “Yes”.
Now, restart the Windows Audio Endpoint Builder and Remote Procedure Call (RPC) services by repeating the instructions from the previous section.
