I installed win98 about a month ago and I haven't had any major problems until today.  I turned on my computer this morning and I noticed the volume control was missing from my taskbar, then I noticed that I had no sounds at all and the options for sound on the control panel were all grayed out.  When I went to the device manager withing Multimedia, it said that the drivers were working, but were disabled for an unknown reason.  How can I fix this??????

Jill,

   Go to Control panel/System/Devices and remove your sound drivers/devices.  Upon reboot, Win98 will redetect your soundcard and reconfigure it for you.
