Default unable to reacquire the hardware! \"MDW\" The cause


I just can't fix this problem, everytime i adjust something in the playback engine! i have to force quit pro tools and reboot.

when i try to leave the playback engine it says...

"pro tools is unable to reacquire the hardware because it is in use by another application. please quit other application and hit ok, if the hardware cannot be aquired please press quit"

There is no other apps running and i have trashed everthing i can think of... all digi prefs and trashed coreaudio driver and AMS prefs!!!

currently i can't bounce to disk and this problem isn't helping me to resolve that problem!! first mastering session in 7 great start!!!
