If you have admin privileges on your Mac, you can restart coreaudio from the command line as follows:

 

start Terminal.app

enter the command:

sudo kill -9 `ps ax|grep 'coreaudio[a-z]' |awk '{print $1}'`

press enter

enter your password when prompted and press return

 

You can also make this a script to click on to do this.

Do you really want to use kill -9? There is probably a more graceful way to do it.

Already done.

 

Preferences>Audio>Devices>Core Audio

 

Check the Enabled box.

 

That's not what I meant... I was talking about a different kill signal, like say 11. Not tried it yet with coreaudio, but in the unix world -9 is the absolute last resort to use on a stubborn process which won't go away.
