Direct sound is an API (Application Protocol Interface) in the DirectX package from Microsoft.

There are two primary components to directsound.
The API driver which you can reinstall by downloading DirectX from microsoft and reinstalling it.

And the Hardware Driver. Which you can download from the website of your soundcards manufacturer.

Try reinstall both of these and see if that fixes things, If not message us back here with your results and we'll do our best to get you goin.

Thanks
Dave
