I have Win 10 and when I open Blender I have the error:
AL lib: UpdateDeviceParams: Failed to set 44100hz, got 48000hz instead

search sound in search box. Open it. Double click on the audio device you are using now. Then another properties box will pop up. Go to advance settings. See 2 pics with white background in my case. Now open blender user preference. Go to system settings. Make sample rate and sample format same as the properties box which pops up previously. In my case see the pic... 48 khz and 24 bit signed.. Then apply settings.. Then reopen the blender app.. The problem will be solved.
Windows 10: Log out and back in again, and Blender will start working again. (This is a solution to many (non-Blender) problems on Win10.)
I was getting the AL Lib:Update message on running a second instance of Blender. Pressed Ctrl-Alt-U, Blender crashed immediately. Could no longer run even a first instance of it.
