So my speakers are working fine, and playing music through iTunes, Pandora, everything else works great. But I get no sound playing songs in Spotify. At first, an error would pop up and say there was a problem with the sound card. Now, that error doesn't show and it plays the songs, but there is no noise. The volume on the mixer is fine and the volume bar on Spotify is on full, but still no sound.

Hey! Welcome to the community :)
Is your sound card that has your speakers attached selected as the default in Windows Control Panel > Sound?

2 things I would suggest trying:
1. Make sure "Hardware Acceleration" is turned off in Spotify's preferences page (Edit > Preferences on windows).
2. Try toggling the "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" option in your sound card properties (Control Panel > Sound > Properties > Advanced"
