recently all of my wav files took a "hollow" sound. I've tried adjusting all the controls in Win98 but it did no good.  Audio CD's play and sound fine.  This problem is only with wav files.  How do I fix this?  Is it a hardware problem?

You'll want to check the .WAV player software audio settings as well if you're not using the windows default player. CDs use a direct line to the output and since CDs still sound clear, you know the connections are good. By defualt, Windows loads optimal settings, so it's most likely a hardware issue.

Check the card for resource conflicts, and (if the card worked fine once, but doesn't now) remove the device from Device Manager and let windows re-detect it. If it's always done this, download the latest drivers and check the companies web site for known bugs and fixes.

If you let me know what Brand & Model it is, I can do more for you.

Good Luck!
