Direct Sound Drivers

Anyone know where you can get some direct sound drivers?

Here's some info as to why I need them:

Everytime I try to play sound on winamp, I get this error:

"Bad DirectSound Driver. Please install proper drivers or select another device in the configuration. Error code: 8878000A."

I think something happened with my sound when I reinstalled windows.

Did you install the sound driver that came with the card?

Do you have any idea what card you have? There are no "direct sound drivers". Each sound card has its own drivers, just as graphic cards have

Does "Creator Lab Sound Blaster Live" sound right? (I have no clue when it comes to sound cards, as you can see...)

Ok, I think I'm downloading the right driver from the creative labs website. Let's hope it works.

And since you're unsure of the brand of your soundcard, try this:
-Go into the Control Panel.
-Double-Click the "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" icon.
-In the dialog that appears, above the slider, to the right of the sound icon, the name of your sound card should be displayed.

Then find that companies' website and download the driver.
Also, what brand is the PC? If it's a generic card wired into the motherboard, you may need to visit the PC manufacters' website in order to get the driver.

Just some ideas...:-) I hope one works!

To the right of the sound icon, it says "no audio device" ... ^_^

The speakers are altec lansing, if that helps.

LOL. "No audio device"...that's a new one on me.

Try double-clicking the speaker icon in your taskbar. In the status bar of that dialog, it should say what card you have. My assumption is that it'll say "No audio device."
If that is the case, try this:
-Open the "Options" menu.
-Click on "Properties".
-See what's listed in the drop-down menu.

Oh. There are no speakers there. Never have been (even before I reinstalled windows).

Ok, so next... where's this "options" button you speak of?

Okay, forget that then. :-P

Let's try another plan:
-Go into your Control Panel.
-Double-Click the "System" icon.
-Click the "Hardware" tab.
-Click the "Device Manager" button in the middle of that window. The Device Manager window will appear.
-Now Click the plus sign next to the "Sound, video, and game controllers" text. This will expand to show the soundcard(s) you [should] have installed. :-P

Hopefully something will show up. If something appears, right click it, and click "Properties." The go to the "Driver" tab, and update it.

Lets see how far this one gets ya. ;-)

Well, 8 things were under it. I tried updating all the drivers, but each one said that it had the current driver.
