Please help! My desktop only has sound when playing a music CD. All other sounds are not there. I can't even get the volume screen to come up. I think the problem started when I upgraded from 95 to 98. My system has a P1 chip at 233Mhz.

Thank you!

jas, welcome to the forums...

did you check if you have any sounds selected ?
I think in win98, you click on start , settings, control panel and then open up sounds. see if there is anything under schemes.

Do you have the little yellow triangular speaker down in the right hand corner in the system tray?

do you see anything suspicious in the device manager ?

right click my computer, properties and then device manager tab. See if there is any question marks, or anything else out of order

Nothing out of order. It looks pretty much like my laptop does at the same screen. The laptop is of the same vintage only at 133Mhz. Is there a group of files I could copy from the working laptop to the desktop to wipe out the problem?

jas welcome to TSF,

If you don't have the any speaker icon in the System Tray (section at the right end of the Taskbar containing the clock) that usually means our volume control did not load properly, to fix this try the following:

[Start] --> [Setting] --> [Control Panel] --> [Add/Remove Programs] then click on the "Windows Setup" Tab.

Scroll down until you find "Multimedia" then click on (NOT ON THE BOX ON IT'S LEFT) it to highlight it , then click on [Details], all of the components listed in this section should be checked ("Multimedia Sound Schemes" and "Sample Sounds" are optional)
After checking everything [OK] your way back out of [Control Panel]. You will probably need your Win98(sc) Cdrom.

If this doesn't work please let us what kind of sound card you're using or what kind of integrated sound you have.

Stick with us and we'll help you get this fixed.

I tried the setup routine. I uninstalled and reinstalled and it still is not working. When I go to execute the volume program it comes back quickly with no popup window.

My system is about 5 years old. It started out as Windows95 and I upgraded to 98. The sound card is a YAMAHA. I tried to reinstall the sound card drivers but they are geared for windows95. I looked out on the Net for updated drivers for 98 but didn't find anything. Do I need to go back to 95, get it working and then upgrade back to 98? What a mess that would be.
