Thread: Directsound... Failure, How Can I Fix?

  1. #1
    I need to finish a project for tomorrow, and have been able to edit my video when importing sounds necessary for the video. I believe this is due to a "directSound failure" found running the utility dxdiag. Can someone please tell me how to fix this?

    DirectSound test results: Failure at step 3 (DirectSoundCreate): HRESULT = 0x88780078 (No driver)

    Thanks for any info. I have DirectX 9 installed.

    Have you tried updating or reinstalling the drivers for your sound card?

    Restore did not work, and I did not modify my drivers. For some reason though, my driver disappeared. I installed a new one and its working now.

    thanks guys
