HELP!
One day I dloaded the latest PC-Cilin update, and all of a sudden i tried playing win amp mp3 songs and iI got this message "Could not create direct sound object.

I tried all other players but it still got the error message
I also noticed that my small speaker icon on the lower right hand corner was missing, and on my sound and multimedia properties/audio menu there are no available playback devices on: sound,recorder,and midi.

What should I Do???

But please don't post your question more than once. Those people that can answer your question have a tendency to hang out in forums where they can answer the question. We've also go a "new questions" link for people who only want to see the new ones. Don't worry, posting it once is better than posting it multiple times.

I deleted your post from the Hardware forum and renamed your question without using all Caps--which can be seen as the equivalent of yelling...

I hope someone comes in and answers your question soon!

I am having the same problem, only this occured after I installed and ran Norton System Works and Zone Alarm Pro. No help for me either. I've gone to the Motherboards website and reinstalled the audio drivers, and it does nothing.

Try installing and re-installing your audio drivers.If the problem persists install Gspot and look for missing codecs at your computer.

You can also try rolling back your computer to an earlier time by 'System Restore'

I ran Gspot and got a list of my audio drivers. I don't know what's missing.

I would use system restore but every time I try it, it says it could not be completed. I've tried all the restore points.

Don't mean to hijack tihs thread, but it would appear that we have the same problem. What's your gspot say? sorry I had to say it.

EDIT: I've solved my sound problem for the most part. I don't have an speaker icon in the system tray, but my audio works no problem now. Check the BIOS settings...more than once.
