Winamp error creating direct sound buffer output


Hello Darrell,

Did you update any drivers or any kind of system change before restarting the computer.Please try below solution. 

Open Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Services. Browse the service and find the one named "Windows Audio". This one basically controls and manages all your audio devices. There might be a chance that due to any update you made this service is stopped. Set the Startup property to "Automatic". Now each time your computer reboots it will start automatically.

Good luck..!!
