    I own a Aureal Vortex Advantage AU8810 sound card, and recently i pucrchaed a new graphics card. However the GFX card was incompatible with my machine so i took it back, i re-installed my voodoo3000 and thought everything was just fine again but to my surprise my sound drivers had gone awol and hence i had no sound.I called out some technicians to fix the prob and they did, well i thought they did.

    I can play mp3`s on winamp as long as i use the Wave Out plugin, but if i try to use the Direct Sound i always get a Fatal Exception Error with the blue screen, on top of that all my games that use Direct Sound Crash in the same way!I`m positive it is a sound issue becuase whenever i disable my sound all the software works fine.

    Could someone please shed some light on my problem as i`m at the end of my patience! Do i have to install some sort of Direct sound driver or should the card to all that anyway.
