Hey, my computer was fixed, untill I attempted to re-update my VIA Audio Controller driver. Now the sound sometimes works, and when it doesn't, I have to re-install all of the hardware drivers. (only the default ones) Any help on where I can find a good one?

And it gets worse! When the sound does work, no game will! I'm guessing its a Direct Sound problem because the Directx Diag program only sometimes detects directSound support. Help!

Sounds like your motherboard has a VIA chipset. Have you installed the latest Hyperion 4in1 drivers?

Also, download the lastest drivers for your sound card from the manufacturers website.
If you need help identifying your sound card try these links:

It's still not working. I've tried installing lots of VIA audio drivers since the problem started, if that helps.

Well, now its fairly stable. But now only the sounds on the desktop work. The rest of the programs don't even think there is a sound card. Winamp tells me to reinstall my soundcard and that there isn't enough memory to run the sound in this program.
