error opening sound device

hello anyone that can help
audacity is giving me an error message
need to check my output device settings for project sample rate?

As it says in “The Lounge” where you posted on someone else’s topic

If you require help using Audacity, or think you have found a “bug”, please post on the forum board relevant to your operating system.

Assuming you are on Windows, I moved your post here to the Windows board and gave it a relevant title.

For help, could you try working through this Frequently Asked Question: .

Sometimes all you need to do is change the project rate bottom left to 44100 Hz, and restart Audacity in case you have just added or removed an external device.

If you need more help after that, please say exactly what operating system you are using and exactly what device you are trying to play audio to.
