Default Cant Talk DirectSound???

This is the lovely error message i keep getting and i ask in game about it and what can be done and everyone says go to "Setup" top right corner pick your sound device. Well i have...and on every single sound device that it gives me i tried it. No success, here is the codeing and error message im getting.

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

This hasnt happened until i got myself a new 26" HannSpree Monitor it does have speakers installed inside the monitor but i use my Bose speakers (alot better sound quality). But how would the sound output deal with me speaking? Please help me anyone that might know whats wrong XD

capture indicates a mic setting problem. in vent setup, set the input box to the name of the mic device you're using.

also try this:

Exit all Vents
In all firewall/virus apps, remove all references to vent in all sections and then either manually re-add it to all ‘allowed’ list or restart vent and let the firewall add it back in.
