First of all, make sure you're running the latest driver for your sound card.

Then update to DX6, as it has a diagnostic problem that can help you solve the problem.

The program is located in C:\Program Files\DIRECTX\SETUP\dxdiag.exe

It means that your sound card driver is not tested by Microsoft, and it might not have all of the DirectSound function available.  Have you run all of the tests under the sound tab yet?  Run it and it will tell you more about your problem.
