Basically, it means that there's a problem with whatever Output Device you've selected in: Winamp > Prefs > Plugins > Output > out_ds > config

Either change it to match your Sound card device driver
or (re)install latest sound card drivers (and maybe also DirectX).
You can also run (Start/Run( dxdiag.
Look under "Sound to see what the problem is.
This often means you need to reinstall or update your sound drivers.

If i don't help you don't appreciate? LOL

anyway, Is this happen only in winamp? If yes then, You should uninstall the winamp and then restart the system after restarting reinstall back the winamp applicaiton.

If no; then, You should install the correct driver of the system.
Option 1: If the audio is builtin to mainbaord.

a. INstall the audio driver of the system enclosed into the system. (If NO CD/DVD you can download the driver at the website of the manufacturer of you stuff ex. DELL, Asus, HP, )
Note: Its better to know the model of your Computer so that i can search and for you to download.
Be sure to install the chipset of the computer.

B. If it is add on card.

install the driver enclosed in the sound card sothat error will the remove.

The same if you have no CD/DVD enclosed you can download the driver at the manufacturer website.

thank you . Please leave a comment b4 you rate.

Sound of My PC doesn't work/silence


The easiest way, you can scan your computer to know which driver you is required. There is a free software that does that. It is found on the website www.driverguide.com. Under the title Welcome to driverguide!, there is a small section 'Quick start'. On the second step 'Scan your system for updates', click on that link and then another screen comes up. Click on Click to start: the download starts. Once it is downloaded, you execute the file (drvscn.exe).
