Have you tried updating the drivers for the sound card and motheboard chipset?
Have you tried re-installing DirectX?

Directx is also used for sound.
The error appears to be graphics card related but it's not forced to be that. Other things can cause the error and they say that on their website.
You could try using drivercleaner to remove your graphics card driver amd then install the driver again.
