Error code : 88780078

I posted in Bug Reports before even noticing Tech Support, but here's the message..

"Whenever I try to play sound it comes up with this message. "Bad DirectSound driver. Please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. Error code: 88780078" Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks"

Since then I noticed that nothing is detecting a sound card in my system. This all started when I was burning a CD with RecordNow and at 98% done my computer locked up. I restarted to this. Again, any help would be great. Thank you

Try reinstalling your soundcard drivers.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

Make sure you have DirectX 9.0c installed, as well as your soundcard drivers are installed properly.

If you are using Windows 95 or NT4, DirectX is not supported. Try switching to waveOut in Winamp by going to:
Preferences > Plug-ins > Output > Select "Nullsoft waveOut..."

Okay, I can't remember what my sound card is, so i'm not sure what drivers to install, and i don't think I can check what kind of sound card it is , because my computer doesn't detect that there is one.
