    Find out your sound card manufacturer and goto their site. And download the driver as per your device.

    If you would like to tell me your devcie name and model, then I can give you the direct link to the driver.

My laptop have lost its sound. whenever i play any song it says bad direct drivers. please install proper drivers error code it says 8780078

The problem with your computer is your audio driver, all you have to do is to copy the brand name and model of your laptop. Then go to their official website and search that model of your laptop. On their official you can download the driver for your laptop and install after downloading so that your audio driver will update and fix the problem. Have a nice day!
