OKAY, so basically:
Control Panel>Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices>Sounds and Audio Devices>Volume>Speaker settings>Advanced... = A window popping up saying "Directsound settings not available."

3 People use this computer and of course I can't keep track of everything they do, so I think my sound control panel has been deleted. Audio files can only be played 1 at a time and not in sync, and some game sounds are echoy and some are distorted.In particular, one games' minimum audio requirement is "DirectSound support" yet, my sound on the game is quite destorted.

If it IS my sound control panel is there any way I can download another one and install it? I don't have my windows CD anymore.

That wouldve worked ages ago, but unfortunatley the problem started about a year ago and the furthest I could go back to was March 30, which didn't solve the problem.
