I'm sure you have had alot of these, and the last time I re installed windows xp professional I had this problem and somehow managed to fix it but now I am stuck, I have simply re-installed service pack 2 from the disk and there is no sound playing at all, obviously something to do with drivers or lack of.

I downloaded lavalys's Everest and it has told me that...


Audio Adapter: SiS 7012 Audio Device

This is all I know, also when I attempt to play something in Winamp, I get this message.

Bad DirectSound driver. Please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. Error code: 8878000A


Could someone please direct me on what to download etc? I think the last time I fixed it, it was something to do with realtek however I tried installing the codecs and everything and it has solved nothing.

Please help, Thanks, Toby.
