You need to re-install your sound card drivers. If this does not work you will need to download and install directx from microsoft.com

good luck

When i start play winamp a small window displays and shown as Bad Direct Sound driver . please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration .Error code :88780078 so i dont have any...


If your default media player is worrking alright then it is possible that the WINAMP installed is having some software issues with your laptop sound driver.
Hence it will be good to uninstall the winamp and choose a new download to be installed and tried.
However if there is issues with the media player then the driver must be reinstalled.

I delete the sound of my laptop...when i try to open winamp it's write bad sound error please install proper drivers error code 88780078...what i have to do? tanks


You can goto this link and download the drivers in Audio section.

After downloading you will install the drivers, restart your Notebook and hopefully get this fixed.

Note: Its better to remove the Audio drivers first before installing the new ones, to do so; Right click My Computer/Computer > then click Manage > Then find the Device manager on the right panel.
There find the Audio drivers/Controllers and uninstalled them.

I hope this will help you out!

there are many reason why you are having this problem, as i can see that you have code 28


Solution : Reinstall Driver, try to find your accompanied CD that goes with your pc

This code means the device was not installed completely.

To resolve this issue, follow the recommended solution. If that does not work, try removing the device from Device Manager and using the Add New Hardware wizard to redetect it. or remove the device physically and re-install it, or else You may need to obtain updated drivers if the error still occurs.
