I recently changed my theme to Windows Basic thinking it would be better but I soon noticed when I tried to download Fallout 3 that my sound wasn't working so went into services then Windows Audio. And as expected Error 1068: The dependancy sevices or group failed to start? Any ideas on how to fix it ?
Did Google it but nothing really helped. :nervous:

Didn't realise I posted it in "General Hardware", oops

Is your sound still working in Windows itself but just not in Fallout 3? Also, what version of Windows? Have you tried installing the latest driver for your audio chipset?

The dependency services I believe are.

Plug and play
Remote procedure call (RPC)

See if these two services are started.

This fix is for an XP machine, I know nothing about Vista’s registry so it may or may not work but is worth a look.

Thanks anyway...
