Good morning Ladies & Gentlemen.
Two weeks ago i built my new PC (first time).
Every thing was fine until 2 days ago. Suddenly no sound comes out unless system sounds.
I get some messages like:

1. "Bad Driver Sound Driver. Please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. Error Code:88780078".
I re-installed the audio drivers but nothing changed.

2. "Error while opening sound device. Please check the output device settings and the project sample rate".

3. "There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to Control Panel click Printers and Other
Hardware and click Add Hardware".


Can you please help me out?

It is a good idea to list your specs and hardware when asking for help.

Are you using a dedicated sound card or onboard audio?

What did you do 2 days ago that may have changed? Install any applications? Install any new hardware?

Did you load the latest mobo chipset drivers? Did you install the audio drivers downloaded from the manufacturers website or from the disk that came with the sound card/motherboard?
