Error code 88780078


Check these things:

1) Click the Start menu button > Click Control Panel (Or Settings > Control Panel), Click Sounds and Audio Devices > Click the Audio Tab: Do you have a Default Device listed under Sound Playback and MIDI playback?

This also may say "Available Device" which you could change to the other option in the drop-down menu as a test. If you change it, restart first, and then attempt sound.

2) Press and hold "Windows Logo" Key + Press the "Pause Break" key on your keyboard > Click Hardware tab > Click Device Manager:

Do you have a multimedia driver configured and installed with no problems. (Problems being exclamation points or with a red "x")?

There are many other issues that can cause this. Please check these first and let us know.

Today,I open a song to listen it but when i play the song with winamp the message come that bad sound speaker and error 88780078


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.

Loss of volume


Hi,

About 6 months ago I had to wipe my hard drive clean and then reinstall all disks for my Dell Dimension 4500 system. Ever since then, there has been no sound for emails, music, Start-up and Logging off etc...etc.

When trying to play a cd for instance, or anything requiring sound, the following message appears:
media_player9.gif 0xC00D11BA: Cannot play the file Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. You may encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:
  • Your sound device is in use by another program. Quit other programs that may be using your sound device, and then try to play the file again.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see the Sound Troubleshooter in Windows Help or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again.
Error ID = 0xC00D11BA, Condition ID = 0x00000000 Web Help
________________________________________________________

There are no other programs running and I have repeatedly gone to control panel and gone through all the Windows sound trouble shooting suggestions regarding sound devices. All wire connections have been checked and there was no change in regard to the plug-in areas.

Everything worked great soundwise prior to re-installation, no wires or connection locations were changed, and no one else has used my computer so I have ruled out any accident by another person.

Please call me or email me at l.bassing@att.net, Phone is 551-497-2795 to help me while at my computer. It will be so much appreciated. This problem has been driving me crazy for too long.

Thanks so much for your prompt attention and looking foward to speaking to a tech repair adviser asap.

Sincerely,
Lauré Bassing

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.

Sound problem


What motherboard are you using? Does it have a Volume effects changer option on its Sound Card? Try changing that option first.
