    Hi, this is my first post and I do this because I have no ideas anymore how to solve my problem. Some time ago I installed a game(Wesnoth) on my computer and for that time since I have no sound. I have tried to update my sound driver, reinstall it, use older drivers(cause maybe they work) and so on. Devices say that driver is working and up do date, nothing is muted and I have checked all my hardware for misconfiguration. When I want to play test tone on computer it tells that playing test tone failed, no audio system show also no "waves". When I try do play music in Winamp it gives "NullSoft DirectSound Output v2.6(d) error"-Bad DirectSounddriver.
    I have Windows 7 and realtek high audio device sound driver (ver. R2.56)/card.
    I thank for all help.

    Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

    Type services.msc

    Locate the Windows Audio service.

    Make sure it's Started and the Startup Type is set to Automatic.

    Try downloading the latest version of DirectX from Microsoft's website.

    does that fix the drivers? I tried going into control panel and check out the audio speaker setting and it showed no audio speak adjustments.....I mean I can see the tab for it but it said no device was found.

    Grave_Digger,

    Have you tried reinstalling your driver?

    You should start your own thread. You'll stand a much better chance at being seen and getting help. It'll also be less confusing for the original poster and members trying to help.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Do you have any System Restore Points to a date before you installed the game?
