THANKSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Apr 20, 2003 #1 Rick TechSpot Staff Posts: 4,573 +65 Desperate pleas for help do not get answered any more quickly. Save it for more important things... Sounds like you should install new, or reinstall your previous sound drivers. Can you hear any sounds at all? If not, then your sound driver is probably corrupted.. That is one of more common problems I've seen. You can download a new/old sound driver from your sound card / computer manufacturer's website. in the mean time, you can take a trip to device manager and uninstall your old sound card. Start/Settings/Control Panel/System/Devices Choose "Sound, video, game controllers" and uninstall you audio card. Apr 20, 2003 #2 Mictlantecuhtli TS Evangelist Posts: 4,345 +11 If you have problems only with WinAmp, you could try selecting another output device instead of DS. Of course other players like Sonique are available too Apr 20, 2003 #3 TS | Thomas TS Rookie Posts: 1,319 What Soundcard are you using & do you get sound in other applications/games?
