Me AGAIN, I seem to be going from one small disaster to another!!! Went to play a music disc in my Windows Media Player 9. It would'nt play, No Sound. Error messages: Error, Problem getting sound information, result code =0x8878000 the request failed because Direct Sound resources, such as the priority level,were already in use by another caller. Whatever that means? Also in DXDIAG:- Test Direct sound, failure at Step 3, Direct Sound create, 0x88780078 (No Driver). Error ID=0xC00D11BA, condition ID=0x00000000. So there you have it Chaps and Chapesses, any ideas what I may have or have not done, I don't recall deleting anything. Do I need a Driver and if so, where from please. Best Regards and TIA, Cochise.
