Default Ventrilo problems

Hey, I've had this problem for about a month now and i havent gotten it to work again. my ventrilo used to work, but now everytime i am trying to connect, it shuts down my computer and puts it into this weird sleep mode that i cant wake up. i ran safe mode to find out what the problem was and this is what the error message was

Unable to activate DirectSound for selected device.
DirectSoundCaptureCreate failed. HR=DSERR_NODRIVER. No sound driver is available for use


Not sure what to do... can someone please help me!?

what OS and audio device are you using?

If you are running Vista/Windows-7, try turning off ‘User Account Control’ located in Windows Control-Panel/User Accounts

is the audio driver up to date? (you might try re-installing the driver)
- If you have a brand-name PC, like Dell or HP, then check the manufacturers website for driver updates.
- If you built the PC and use the on-board sound device then check the motherboard manufacturers website for drivers for your model motherboard.
- If you use a plug-in soundcard, like SoundBlaster, then check that manufacturers website for drivers.
