My speakers are connected and worked. But now without me changing anything I don't get any sound. If I go to Control Panel - Sound and try to set it up it does not work. I'm not getting any sound. Not even in preview.
.
When I'm logging online I can hear dial tone and connecting modem from speakers, instead of from hadrware before. Is this OK?

This may seem obvious..but sometimes we miss the obvious...have you turned up your speaker in Win95...(just double click the speaker which should be on the right hand side of your task bar)

make sure that nothing is muted and that the sliders are about half ways up...depending on how loud you want the sound...

It is ok if you can hear the dial tone from your modem...at least you know your speakers work...so it must be a Win95 setting...

anyways i hope this helps

Conan!

Thanks for a prompt answer.

Sliders are almost all the way up and nothing was muted - still does not work. Any other idea?

It seems like they stopped working overnight. One day the worked - next day they were mute.

Thanks for accepting the answer...but you should have rejected my response if I didnt help you out...

Could someone have unplugged your speakers and then plugged them back into the wrong jack in the back?

(just a "stab in the dark"....)
hmmm...did you try what smeebud said...

If smeebud's answer works then you can just post a message to the admin of this site and transfer the points to him...

either way...hopefully we can help you get your problem worked out...
