What that means that it won't let you create a sound because of a sound that is being played in Windows. Use DirectSound so you won't experience that error while playing mp3, and audio files in Winamp.
DirectSound is in Prefrences (Ctrl+P) > Output > Nullsoft DirectSound Output.

Whole load of info about that topic.

Update your DirectX, update your sound card drivers.
DirectX can be found from the Microsoft website. Your sound card drivers from your manufacturer.

What OS are you running? If it's NT4 that only supports up to DirectX 3...

Read the system specifications carefully, go to the website that manufacturers your motherboard (ie: like if its an IBM motherboard, then go to IBM.com), and search for those certain sound/motherboard drivers. Once you find the specific driver, download it, and read the instructions carefully on how to install it flawlessly.

(thread split to avoid mess, please don't spam with posting unrelated problems in existing threads)
it's no use updating directx if you have winxp. also, xp has drivers for 99% of known soundcards already on the CD. in other words, i think you should buy a soundcard first (or install shit from the CDs that came with the computer if you really believe that you have a soundcard).
