giving error message: Wndows could not start Windows Audio service on Local

Search of Vista Knowledgebase gave no results. I must have inadvertently

I had he same problem, same error message and same red X. I uninstalled by audio driver and restarted windows. Plug and play reinstalled the driver. Viola! no red X and the sound is back to normal.
