Is the cd player software component of win95 installed? Check it out by going to start - settings control panel, select add/remove programs. In there click on the tab at the top that says windows setup. Scroll down the list of windows components until you get to multimedia. Open it up and see if cd player is checked. Let me know if this helps. Bart.

If the CD player software is running okay, it sounds like the CDROM's audio cable is disconnected from the soundcard.
Has it ever worked?

The audio cable from your CDROM to your sound card is disconnected or connected to the wrong socket on your sound card.  Remove cover, flat ribbon cable to controller and small (round, probably grey) cable from CDROM to sound card.
