    Can anyone help me!?!?!? I have an hp pavillion 750c with XP Pro. My system sounds are not playing. I can play audio with Winamp with no problem but when I check the properties for Sounds and Audio Devices it says there are no audio devices, playback devices, etc. I have rolled back, uninstalled and updated drivers (not necessarily in that order) and have had no luck......Today all system sounds came back after a System Restore but were gone again after the next time I started up. What is going on here!?!?!The audio driver is Intel(r) 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio Controller
    Please help!!!!

    hi, welcome to tsg

    does the pc make sounds when it boots or shuts down.
    can you play a CD?

    can you have a lok in device manager and see if there are any yellow triangles
    may need a new driver
    when did this start happening and can you remember if you installed any hardware or software?

    Thank you for your reply.......

    The system doesn't make any sounds on startup/shutdown. I can play CD's although I just Defragged and now I can't play anything I have this message:

    DirectSound output v2.2.10 error Device not found. Please select another device in configuration. Error code 88780078

    All this started after I ran HiJackThis to remove spyare......
    I have no yellow triangles in Device Mgr but there are yellow ? next other devices and USB device which were installed w/computer and now are gone.
    This is driving me nuts....if I do a System Restore the DirectSound message will go away but still no system sounds or recognized sound device....
