Installed hallmark card studio 2011 upon launch keep recieving send error message to microsoft.


The installation must have gone wrong somewhere, Uninstall and install again.
If the program works anyway. Just disable the "Send Error Report" message:

To access the settings for the reporting feature:

  • Click Start.

  • Right-click My Computer, then click Properties.

  • Click the Advanced tab.

  • Click Error Reporting.

To configure the error reporting feature:

  • By default, error reporting is enabled. To disable it, click Disable error reporting. To continue to be notified when errors occur without being prompted to report the errors, click to select the But notify me when critical errors occur check box.

  • Specify whether you want to use error reporting for the Windows operating system, for programs, or for both Windows and programs.

  • To report errors only for selected programs, click Choose Programs, click All programs in this list, and then click the programs that you do not want to include.

  • To add a program that is not listed, click Add, type the name of the program, or click Browse to find the program on your computer.

Creative sound card! no sound!


Check whether you plugged in the speaker wire into the correct jack at the back of the computer (it should go into the green colored jack on the sound card).

Did you try playing a sound file? Does media player show the file as playing, but you can't hear anything? Or do you get any error? if there's any error, please mention the error.

If the sound plays but you can't hear anything, again, check the speakers are connected to the correct sound jack. Next, try connecting a pair of headphones or earphones (lower the volume before playing any sound  or music file).

If you still can't hear anything, click Start and type the command "dxdiag" in the Run box and then press the Enter key. In the dxdiag window, click the Sound tab. Check the Notes box, if it gives any error info. If your card is working, it should say 'No problems found." You can also test the sound using the "Test Directsound" button.

If you still can't hear any sound, you should check and reinstall your sound card driver manually after removing it first.

There may be other problems. For more information, check this nice blog post about sound problems.

Hope that helps.
Regards,
Raspal

Yes there is something wrong! The sound card driver is corrupted!

YOu need to check on device manager again. Look for your drivers there.

If you do not see the EXACT NAME of your sound card, then the driver that is installed is a DEFAULT driver made by the os.

Ex: This is a sound card driver name listed in Device manager:
IDT HIGH DEFINISION AUDIO

This is an example of a default sound card driver that will not work well on certain sounds or will not work at all:

LEGACY SOUND DEVICE

Even thought you many not see a yellow question mark (which you should be checking for too just in case)on any of the listings for your hardware, chances are you are still using a default sound card driver due to a corruption to its original sound card driver.

So recheck your device manager and find out the exact name of your original sound card. If there is no match to your exact name of your sound card, then you need to REINSTALL your sound card driver again and you will immediatly see your sound card working again :)

If this does not work, you may have to change your sound card.

Hope this helps :)

You might find it difficult to get hold of windows XP keys since Microsoft stopped selling it.

After re-installing windows XP Professional, every thing is OK but no sound. I went to sound from control pannel but I found the sentence: no audio device


Open the Device Manager and look for any Yellow Exclamation points indicating a device hasn't installed properly. If your sound card shows up as an Unknown device, run Windows Update to allow it to find the proper driver. Sometimes on re-install, Windows needs to update several times, installing Critical updates before looking for drivers. If this doesn't work, click on the link below and install the program. It will identify all of your devices. When you find the soundcard, go to the manufacturers website to locate and install the driver. I hope this helps with your problem and Good Luck!

Error code: 88780078


Error code 88780078 Means bad sound card driver or bad direct sound driver.
You need to re-install your sound card drivers. If this does not work you will need to download and install directx from www.microsoft.com.
