This error is caused by bad soundcard drivers.
Try updating the drivers from the manufacturer's website.

Other things to try:
Prefs (Ctrl+P) -> Plugins -> Output -> WaveOut -> config
Change "Output Device" to your soundcard driver.

Alternatively, switch to DirectSound Output instead of WaveOut:
Prefs -> Plugins -> Output -> select (hi-lite) DirectSound Output

If the problem persists, please include relevant system specs:
PC Manufacturer, CPU, Soundcard, Windows OS, DirectX version
Also include some Winamp details, eg. version #, a list of any 3rd-party plugins you may have installed, plus what file types you're playing at the time (eg. mp3, wav, midi, wma, cda, etc)
