So, I recently uninstalled and installed the battlefield 1942, because the game would not allow me to vote or change my username or change controls. The game ran well other than those issues. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game from the CD. Now the game will not run displaying a black screen on startup.
I disabled the windows service "windows audio endpoint builder" by going to services.msc in the search box. Which also disables "windows audio." The game will then start and run fine except without audio. My other issues with the controls and username have been fixed. Now, I have a new issue... frustrating. I'm running windows 7.
I tried running the game in windows XP compatiablity mode. I tried the BF1942-vista-win7-fix. They did not work. Anytime windows audio service is enabled and windows audio endpoint builder is enabled it does not work.
How do I fix my audio?
