You’ll have to further define “acting weird”. Does the volume work at all? Does it only not work when you adjust the volume?

There are a few threads already exhausted on other sites concerning this exact problem.

Go to Start—> Run, and type in services.msc.

A window will pop up with a list of services. Scroll down to Windows Audio. Right-click
and click on Properties.

Make sure that “Startup type” is set to automatic. Also, make sure, under “Service
status,” start is selected.
