That is a Bad DirectSound Driver Error. If the problem persists, make sure you have the correct sound card drivers installed. Also try downloading and installing the newest driver for your hardware.

If you click on Start, and then Run... type in dxdiag and press ok.
This will bring up DirectX where you can run some test with your soundcard.

How can i resolve the error code 88780078 shown by winamp


Try going into the device manager and removing the sound driver. Hopefully you have the sound card driver. Then reboot the Pc if the system installs the driver software and you hear noise your good. If that doesn't install it from your cd. If it works try uninstalling the program that caused the problem.

Strange problems with Z-2300's


I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:

Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer Turn off the main switch Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob Repeat again (2 times) Replug the control pod Turn on the main switch and the control pod See what happens

I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.

Bad direct sound driver


First, go to control panel, and then device manager, to see if any problems exist. If not, still in control panel. go to check sound. Click on Manage Audio devices to see if all is ok. If you need to redownload your sound controller, like realtek, or it needs an upgrade, you can download that from your computer's support website. You also can check to see if you have configured your system to your speakers==are you using built-ins, or have you purchased others? Let me know if this does the trick for you.

5.1 Speaker Setup


check if the speakers are working with winamp or any other media player. If yes then install windows media player again. else there might be some problem with your rear speakers. check them out with a hardware service-person. if nothing works, reinstall windows. the default drivers will be loaded and your software problem is solved

No sound out of speaker(the one with the volume control on it


I'm taking it that from what you're saying, the other speaker is working perfectly.

here are a few things you could try, if this is the case. You've probably attempted most of them, but it doesn't hurt to cover all your bases.

Turn both your speakers, and windows Volume Control up full blast. (while you're within the Volume Control window, it wouldn't hurt to check to see if the balance is off there, as well). Put your ear to the speaker, and listen hard- do you hear any faint hissing or crackling sound, like static?

If you do, then the speakers are working perfectly on their end. The hissing sound would be power going through them. this can only mean that there is :

a) a problem with the connection to the computer - fiddle around with the cable connecting it, twist it slightly in the socket and look for and *gently* bend any creases you may find back into their proper places, while playing a song. if at any point you hear the other speaker come on, you have your culprit. Also, try plugging a headset or spare set in if you have any, to eliminate the possibility it's a bad jack with the soundcard. if you hear both speakers on your headphones playing, it's NOT the card.

b)a problem with the software you're using to play sounds. again, open up Windows Volume Control, and check the speaker balance there. if the problem occurs only with certain programs, like Winamp or Windows Media Player, open up those programs and check the balance there.



If you, on the other hand, DON'T hear any sound coming
from the speaker in question, or if what happened above doesn't work, it could be a problem with the cable connecting the two speakers together. Play with the audio cable connecting to both of them for a bit, see if you can get them working by repositioning it, again while playing test music.

If the above solutions don't help, you could be looking at a blown speaker, and they may need to be replaced. if you do so, i'd recommend any one of the 2.1 (two speakers and a subwoofer) systems that Logitech sells. they are extremely simple to set up, and have excellent sound for a good price.
