What I mean is when I open AOL Radio, It says there is a Directsound driver Please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. Error Code 88780078. When I try Windows Media player It says I don`t have a sound card installed. I would search on-line for the driver, but I cant figure out what card I have.
go to Start/ Right click My Computer/ Properties//Hardware/Device Manager.... there should be your sound card listed there in the Sound section.... but better to get a driver reinstalled from the manufacturers site rather than via the Device Manager's prompt. By the way do you see a red or yellow icon there in the Device manager?
hmmm, I'm not familiar with laptops, but it seems like you are indeed missing a needed driver/card there according to that list. Someone with that expertise should come along and advise further, so hopefully you can wait a bit for that.
I have tried downloading the driver from HP and ESS, and when I install it automatically(with setup.exe) There is always an error message that says Audio Installation False. If I go to Add New Hardware and tell it Have Disk and select A1.inf, and click next it says there is a fatal error. Any Ideas?
yes the sound once worked. I did a factory restore to remove spyware and after that the sound stopped working. There isn`t anything under other, But there is a"Unknown device" under sound, video, and game controlers.
