Dear Bleeping Computer technician
I'm having a problem: It seems that my speakers died for there was no sound. That turned out not to be true, for nothing else would work when I tried to plug (other speaker, headphones, in all the spots for them to go) it in.
When I looked up Compaq's Help Center I came across a section entitled Audio Test where I wanted to test out the sofware, drivers, and the sound card. When I clicked on it to test this a message came up in the middle of the test saying "This application has failed to start because WindSAPI.dll. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

I tried looking up the dll but couldn't locate it. I did try and reinstall it, but that didn't work and it caused some other programs to not work so well so I quickly used the Recovery. I'm not sure what and where to go to solve this. "
Any help would be hot." :thumbsup:




My system is as follows:

Is that a virus? I would scan my computer because I think it rings a bell in my head.

WindSAPI.dll are you sure it isn't winSAPI.dll? If that is what it is I would just repair my OS and it should be ok.

Hi again.

I went and used the XP CD to run their repair and checked (through Check Disk) the C drive, which it said that it found some errors. However, the file is still missing and even after reinstalling the program (which the Help Suggests) the file still is missing.
I also reinstalled the sound software that was installed (Sound Blast Audigy) and have found no luck in finding the dll.

I think I missed something in regards to the Repair installation: why can't I find the file? Am I missing anything?



(And no, were not dealing with a virus, just the fact that I can't even begin to find out if its the hardware or not!!!)
