    Resolved [RESOLVED] No Sound - DirectSound Buffer - error message

    This one has me confused.
    I'm not sure if the culprit was doing a Windows7 update today (hadn't done one in about a month). After the reboot or shortly thereafter there now seems to be no sound coming from the speakers.
    When I did the individual sound test I did get the proper 'ding' test sound indicating that the sound is working.
    Playing Winamp I receive a "Error creating DirectSound buffer. Error code: 88780096" alert message.
    Windows Media Player/VLC/WM Classic all open and play properly without sound.

    I thought a culprit could perhaps be "HD VDeck" (this uses a SPDIF Interface) sound system enhancer ... the self tests here seem to indicate that a everything is performing properly.

    Maybe there's a wizard that knows the answer on this one ... thank you.

    I found it ...

    Somehow I must have tripped something somewhere and used the app as a last resort: Windows 7 Manager ... using the built-in troubleshooter (for audio) and that did the trick.

    I'm not a big fan of all-in-one fix-it apps ... but this one has saved my arse a few times so I'm beginning to believe it's right and proper.
    (as best as I can figure ... not sure why but my audio was not set as default).
    Thanks for being there.
