Microphone problems Tags: Control Panel Hardware Microphone Windows XP Last response: April 3, 2004 6:56 PM in Windows XP Share Anonymous April 1, 2004 12:31:38 PM Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?) Hello I'm having some trouble setting up a microphone on my PC. I have Windows XP. I have already done a search on my problem but none of the solutions helped. OK well when I go to "Sounds and Audio Devices" in Control Panel, then I click "Voice" and "Test Hardware". It then pauses for about 5 seconds and says: "An error occurred during DirectPlay voice setup. The error code is 0x80004001" I then click "OK" and this happens: "Windows cannot execute DpvSetup, use Add/Remove Programs Control Panel to install" I can't find anything in add/remove programs. It's quite frustrating since I'm actually wanting to hook up my guitar to my PC to do some recordings but it won't even work with a standard microphone. Please can someone help and if you require any more info I'll be happy to supply it. Thanks in advance More about : microphone problems Anonymous April 3, 2004 6:56:05 PM Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware (More info?) Here's what worked for me: Try downloading and installing the latest version of DirectX 9.0b. That did it for me. Bob Can't find your answer ? Ask !
