Lost sound on CD

Hello, I have a Compaq 3060 running 98 Build 4.10.1629 which I installed over the top of an existing Windows 95 OSR-2. Playing music CDs worked for a while, but when I changed the 'Music CD' setting to a different drive, in the Multimedia settings under control panel, I the sound. The cd appears to play, but no sound comes out the speakers. Is there anything I can do to fix this - I guess it must be a case of just tweaking the registry to put the right thing back in.

Thanks in advance,
Nicholas Waltham

I had the sam eproblem with 98, I had to do this..

Try looking in your Registry for this Key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaResources\mci\cdaudio

Remove the Volume Settings Entry and then try rebooting
Other CD settings are in -

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\MEDIA\0000\Config

Hope this helps
Craig
