I recently upgraded windows 95 to win 98. Everything is fine except for the sound. In order to hear sound or music I have to have volume on full blast and then it is just barely a whisper. Before I upgraded to Win 98, the sound worked fine.

I tested the sound card and speakers on another computer and they both work fine. The sound card is an S3 trio64v2.

I had the same problem 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
 
Let me know if that helps,

Craig

Did you check the volume level on the yellow speaker on the taskbar?

Anub,

 
  Uninstall, and reinstall your soundcard via Control Panel.  That would be the first thing i tried.

I had a  SOUND CARD like that. that was giving the problem like you describe, the problem relies in WDM WIN98 Drivers. you have to install the drivers that come with the sound card. and replace the WINDOWS98 to the Old drivers of your Sound card. DO not leave the WDM files. Replace them. http://www.s3.com/search/search.cgi?query=S3+trio64v2&results=0
S3 TRIO 64v2 is not a sound Card is a Video Card.
you are looking at the wrong device. your sound card Cant be the S3 Trio 64v2
try what I said above to do the sound card. DO NOT IT TO THE VIDEO CARD. it has to be done with the Sound cArd.
