I have been trying to determine why I can never hear sounds when playing things like youtube videos.
I-tunes type music will play, but when I go to the "Control Panel - Sounds and Audio Devices" it shows me that there is "No Audio Device" loaded.
I have a Windows XP SP3 system, Pentium 4 2.00 GHz CPU, and Creative SB Audigy.
In the Device manager it shows no conflicts or issues under "Sound, video and game controllers"
At someones suggestion I used a "dxdiag" command to test the sound using DirectX Diagnostic Tool.
Here are the results:
Sound Test: DirectSound test results: Failure at step 3 (DirectSoundCreate): HRESULT = 0x88780078 (No driver)
Music Test: 3 Ports available:
Microsoft Synthesizer: DirectMusic test results: Failure at step 6 (Activating the IDirectMusicPort):
HRESULT = 0x88780078 (No driver)
SB Audigy DirectMusic Synthesizer: DirectMusic test results: All tests were successful.
SB Audigy Audio: DirectMusic test results: All tests were successful.
Please let me know if you need more info. I am fairly technical, but am hit or miss with software issues.
