This is the first time I build a PC using the VGA & sound built-in on-board motherboard. Everything goes fine after installed win98. But the problem is I don't know how to install the sound & VGA driver????The m/board comes without driver CD.

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

What MB?? Most MB sites have the current drivers available for download, post the Make and model and we can give you a link.

If you are not sure of the Make and Model, then post the BIOS number that shows up durning or right after the memory count, hit the Pause button to stop long enough to write it down.

Check "Device Manager" in "System" in "Control Panel" for your video and sound devices. If these aren't correct, delete them. Then try "Add New Hardware" in "Control Panel", if it didn't find new hardware during reboot.

If this doesn't do for you, the drivers that you need aren't on Win CD.

Go to www.motherboards.org after getting info described by rayt333 in previous comment.

Yes, you will have to load drivers for all devices that are integrated in MB. After ID-ing MB , go to MB site for drivers (motherboards.org). If not available, view manual online to see what chipsets are used for sound and video. Go to those websites for drivers (windrivers.com). You should be able to download them. Life isn't easy.
