Re: 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.

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.
I have an Fujitsu Siemens Amilo D7830. I was updating chipsets to the laptop when it bluescreened. I had to reformat the HDD and reinstalled Windows Xp Pro SP2. Since then I have installed every conceivable Windows Update file there is and have updated all other drivers and chipsets. However, my soundcard is no longer working.
When clicking on the device in question in the device management screen, the following error messages are displayed for the Realtek AC'97 soundcard: This device cannot start. (Code 10), PCI bus 0, device 31, function 5.
I have attempted at downloading and installing almost every drive I can find for this device, and have followed the standard Microsoft help routines. i.e. uninstalling the device and reinstalling the device still with no luck.
I hope you will be able to assist, as my last resort will be to take it into the a techie shop i.e. PC World for them to have a look at it.
