  1. I was having some problems with my computer, so i formatted my computer and reinstalled XP. After installing, my audio has not been functioning. I get this error when opening winamp:
    bad DirectSound driver. please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. Error Code: 88780078

    I've seen a couple users with the same error, but none of the information has helped me out. I've tried reinstalling XP again, which was unsuccessful. Please help :(
