I have been trying for months now to correct a problem with my sound, voice specifically. I believe it is a registry problem since I have tried different pieces of equipment (headphones, microphones, etc) and different USB ports (I have 7 in all). When I try to test my sound hardware I get the following error:
Direct Play Voice Setup: An error occurred during DirectPlay voice setup. The error code is 0x80004005.
then I get
Windows error: Windows cannot execute DpvSetup.exe, use Add/Remove Programs control panel to install.
I have gone into regedit and changed my duplex settings to 3, 3, 2 and it still does not correct it. I did notice earlier though that under Audioconfig I have 3 duplex folders with 1 of them being a duplicate. I have a screenshot but am not sure how to put it in this post. I have also noticed that my duplex settings do not seem to be saving...
What I am wondering
(A) Is it possible to completely clear the registry and start fresh? and would this likely fix my problem?
If not how might I fix this problem.
My pc runs a 160gb drive with 2 partitions... 1 20g partition with OS only and the other 140g for storage.
