    When I try to play some of my games I get a directsound error message. It says Error Initializing directsound. My dxdiag gives me this message when I test directsound.

    I just barely wiped my hard drive so I thought maybe I don't have the right drivers installed so I ran the drivers disc that came with the computer but that didn't help. I have the same sound equipment installed since I got the computer, I haven't changed any of it at all. I have direct x 9.0c and all my video drivers are the latest drivers, is there anyway to download the sound drivers somewhere, or is there something else I need to do to fix this problem.
    Thakns for the help.
