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

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
